What to give her to eat after having a bad tummy ache?

My 7 yr. old dd looks like she is feeling better she was feeling sick yesterday I am keeping her home from school today she has good attendance anyway. But I do want to know what can I feed her, I offered her some dry toast she said no then I offered her some saltiness crackers she ate 4 she has been sipping on watered down tea room far so good. my dh wants me to take her to the dr so he can give her something. I mean what can he do I think we should wait it out she seems to be fine she is acting like herself.
thanks ladies!

  • There is nothing you can do for a tummy ache except wait it out. Just keep doing what you are doing. Jello is also good, broth and mashed potatoes w/o much butter.

  • Yogurt.

    Yogurt, which is full of natural healthy bacteria can help soothe a stomach ache. Often a stomach ache is caused due to lack of bacteria that helps to break down food, meaning the stomach acids that help break down food are working over-time causing pain, cramping and acid reflux. Yogurt replenishes those lost bacterias that are so essential to our digestion.

  • A doctor isn't going to fix a stomach ache; kids get them. The BRAT diet is good; Bananas, Rice, Toast. Best of luck - I bet she'll be feeling much better soon.

    B - Banana's
    R - Rice
    A - Applesauce
    T - Toast (try a light coating of jam or pb)

  • Keep it simple. Wonton soup from the local Chinese restaurant is good. Plain pasta or rice. Keep her hydrated. Gatorade is also very good.

  • My girls had the same thing and doctor would not see them and told me just push the fluids like 7up, water, pediatlye, gatarade. As for eating I have been watching and doing the brat diet which is listed up above. Or things I have been my girls is soup crackers, graham crackers, toast, english muffins, jello, popslices, baked pt with just a little butter, rolls, pancakes, waffles, soup, ginger snaps cookies, dry cereal, just anything light to eat, a little at a time. My girls get well and then sick again. so just keep an eye out. Also have had the diarria part. If really think she needs to be seen take her but my doctor said just to let it runs it course nothing can give them. Also made my girls take it easy and rest. Hang in there it will get better. first time in over 2 weeks all three are in school and crossing my fingers.

  • Have you tried giving her ginger ale for her tummy ache? Ginger is really good for upset tummies.
