  • Here's a thought, maybe it's the soda, pudding and chef boyardee? Don't get me wrong, I let my kids eat that stuff too, but not when they are sick and already throwing up. Try giving her some plain toast, crackers, a banana, something to help settle her tummy. It probably is the mucus making her sick, but the junk you are feeding her is making it worse.

  • If I ate that junk, I would throw up, too.

    You need to feed children, and adults healthy foods: fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. Drink water.

  • You could try Jello just to fill her belly I wouldn't try and feed her "solid" foods until she stops throwing up if she wants soda try and opt for sprite or 7up rather than caffeinated drinks... The last thing you want to give a child who is throwing up is milk or WATER. You could also try and freeze the pedialyte and give it to her like a Popsicle! If you don't see some signs she is getting better  in a few days  take her to the doctor again. I wouldn't worry about her eating right now because food is the last thing we want when we are sick just keep her hydrated and she will be back to herself in no time.
