Water water everywhere but not a drop in sight!

Clear Liquids

Water is good and all, but plain old H2O can get so mundane especially when your child needs to take a lot of it during illness periods.


If you’re feeling adventurous, paedialyte or other clear fluids such as apple juice work just as well if not better! They help improve blood sugar levels while providing some hydration for the body at the same time.Putting ice cubes in drinks often helps stimulate thirst as a recent study shows

The ingredients I would recommend that are found in store bought paeditlytes include;
- sodium: assist recovery gastro-induced diarrhea through its hydrating properties
-citric acid; boosting digestive system enzymes

Bone broth

Bone broth recipes involve boiling bones (say chicken) with water which we may add ginger,idli spices to boost flavor.After simmering ~24hrs ,we’re left with beneficial residue containing essential amino acids,digestive minerals like phosphorus giving an easily digestible meal.Thus ideal for children after vomiting.


How about trying:

-Soup prepared using homemade beef bones could also offer high nutrition values

-Veggies e.g.leeks,onions,carrots can also go into pot servings which has antioxidants promoting healthy growth of immune systems forming bulk constituent of bowel movements.“Good riddance”

Sometimes Medication helps

Most parents who’d have used anti-emetic meds admits their efficacy duirng bouts off vomits.This useful medication comes highly recommended inferring from parenrs seeking their children’s comfort amidst vomits.


For instance, ondansetron is an anti-emetic medication that works by blocking signals sent to the brain’s vomiting center.It dissolves quickly over the tongue making it perfect for toddlers struggling with swallowing pills. Consequently relieving any bout of vomiting among other symptoms such as nausea and dizziness typical of most sickness episodes


Basically, enduring a sick toddler is never easy but we got you!
-Ensure your child stays hydrated using fluids like paedialyte,bone broth or water.
-Freeze fruits since they will come in handy during illness periods.
-Shy away from giving solid foods until further notice due potential relapsing effects considering that every child differs.

Most importantly always trust your gut feelings and keep communicating with healthcare providers!
