Ok and thanks for your input.
Based on the informations provided there are various possibilities like pharyngitis, tonsillitis and typhoid fever. Your child need reevaluation by his doctor. He need to go for blood complete counts and typhidot test. In the mean time give him Syp ibuprofen to relieve inflammation in the throat. Use syp Zofran ( ondensetron) for vomiting. It is safe. Give zofran around 30 minutes before using any liquid and semisolid diet ( avoid solid food). Continue with pedialyte to prevent dehydration. Take him to ER immediately if he continue to throw up his meal or unable to take orally despite all of above management.
Thanks and do let me know if you need further help regarding any aspect of this question.

Enlarge and inflamed tonsils can cause such issues including fever, inability to take both solid and liquid diet, and persistant vomiting. He may need a short course of antibiotics like amoxicillin if they are inflamed and strep test is positive.
Pharyngitis is inflammation of back of throat which can be a possibility.
There is no need to go for typhidot test if tonsils are found inflamed. We always considered typhoid fever in differential diagnosis when a child has issues like your has but will not require to investigated if inflamed tonsils are present.
