How many wet diapers has she had today?   It sounds like norovirus which dd had about this age such sporadic vomitting is annoying for sure.

In my experience norovirus is a stomach bug which just when you think it is gone, it comes back for one or two vomiting spells and then disappears.   Talk to her doctor or if the symptoms of vomitting or diarhhea get worse go to urgent care/ ER.   Depending on the average amount of wet diapers she had , 4 could be concerning.   Stay away from as much dairy products as you can while she is sick.  

There is a water called Smart water on the market if you are concerned about hydration.  There is no flavor, no color, no sugar added.  It does have the added electrolytes though to help when sick. DD always liked those Mini melt popsicles when she didnt feel well.

Your welcome .  I try to help others with my little experience with various things.  Does she like chicken noodle soup or ramen soup?  Jello could be a fun experience as well though the technicolors are not fun if she vomits.  As long as she is pooping and peeing that means the virus is slowly leaving her body.  I know some people who have had the actual flu for 2-3 weeks this year.  It is a brutal strain but it comes with 104-105 fevers.  Unless she has had fevers like that most likely a stomach bug.   Definitely try to talk to her doctor for more advice and get an appointment just for a once over.
