    Default what to feed a 4yo with gastro

    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.
