  • I love gatorade for the stomach virus, it helped me everytime but that is only when I was throwing up. He needs to stay hydrated.

  • Lots of fluids to restore electrolytes and hydration. Very bland food if he/she has an appetite at all (bratty diet) medicinal there isn't much that'll help the stomach virus unless they become so hydrated that they need something to stop the nausea.

  • It's a stomach virus, it'll work itself out. Just keep the kid hydrated. Though if you suspect food poisoning or a more serious illness like the flu you should take the kid in to the docotor
