  • Fluids - not food. She needs fluids - so she won't dehydrate. And if it gets really bad - take her to the docs.

  • I agree with the others. Just keep her hydrated. I wouldn't worry about food right now.

  • There is an old saying which I have found to be very true - " Feed a cold and starve a fever " . Fluids certainly.

  • She may drink some chicken broth. She doesn't want to eat because her body doesn't need food right now, it needs rest.

  • Call her doctor and talk to the doctor's nurse. Then I would start with the BRAT diet. Food isn't the issue but drinking is. I would want to make sure small sips of liquid. Gatoraid is what I use and what my son's doctor usually will suggest. You can do pedialite or even flavored ice pops work well. Anything to keep the fluids in. Once she starts to feel better: toast, bannans, apples, and rice.

  • Saltines, but don't be concerned if she nibbles at one and then doesn't eat anymore.
