So it seems DS has been hit with the dreaded gastro bug thats been going around. Hes nearly 4yo, vomited twice today and diarrehaed once.
He is saying hes hungry. I gave him a gastrolyte drink and he managed to drink most of it.
What should i give him to eat??

They say a BRAT diet is best - banana, rice, Apple, toast (I hope I got that right). I usually start the kids with some plain bread/toast and see from there

My dd is slowly recovering and I went with the BRAT advice. Water crackers were a big part of it, too.

I had it a few weeks ago. Was awful. Plain toast was good when i felt up to it. At work, we also give my residents lemonade and jelly as well as crackers

3 days on a clear diet. Then start introducing dry crackers, pureed apple, unbuttered toast, soup with no cream, boiled/mashed potatoes (no milk). Arrowroot biscuits seemed to work for DS.

I always start with a single piece of toast and vegemite. If that stays down okay offer another piece. I hope your little one feels better soon.
