  • Not 100% sure. I know when I had the flu my mom made me drink apple juice and other juices all day long. Good Luck hope she gets better.

  • Have you had her tested for H1N1? If not I would. Also if her fever stays up take her back to the ER they have been some really bad cases of flu this year.

  • Give her CLEAR fluids.. u can also give her some chicken broth.. water is always the best.. dry toast, lite crackers.

  • oh, I heard very small sips of gelatin water, cooled broth in cup. anything with calories. little sip here, little sip there if there is puking involved
