Beyond the BRAT diet... Any suggestions?

Posted by   + Show Post

So my dd has been sick the entire weekend and now she can't even keep down the brat diet. Any food suggestions? I feel so bad, she really hasn't eaten in 48 hours. She's 11.

Call your doctor, see if she needs to go to the hospital to get IV liquids. My DD had something like this and had to be admitted to the hospital to be on IV due to dehydration.  If she has not gone to the bathroom in a while, or has diarrhea, that is a good indicator.  If she can at least drink a little, then tea, ginger ale, broth, jello etc. she should be fine.

I've been watching for dehydration but so far I think she's ok.
