DD's sick and refusing to eat

She's 7 and has some stomach bug. She started throwing up Thursday, threw up everything she ate. Friday, she only ate some toast, and a few sips of broth but kept it down. Today, she threw up once this morning after she woke up at 6:00 and snuck a poptart. She hasn't eaten anything else. I tried to get her to eat some crackers, but after one nibble she said it made her sick. She's drinking plenty of fluids, but hasn't really eaten since Thursday. What do I do? :-(

As long as she is hydrated she should be okay. Since she is drinking maybe try to get her to drink some pediasure or some kind of supplement shake.

Let her be. Keep her hydrated, but don't try and get her to eat.

Oh that's a good idea.....does that have milk in it though? She has a very low grade fever and I'm afraid to give her any dairy.
