3 Tips for Managing Vomiting in Infants and Children

Jennifer Gershman, PharmD, CPh, PACS

It can be daunting for parents to see their child vomiting, especially when this occurs in the evening after the pediatrician's office may be closed.

It can be daunting for parents to see their child vomiting, especially when this occurs in the evening after the pediatrician’s office may be closed. Pharmacists are very accessible and can be a great resource to provide support and counseling tips for families. Parents may be overwhelmed with trying to determine the cause of the vomiting as well as management options. Vomiting in children is generally caused by gastroenteritis, which is an infection of the digestive tract.

Here are 3 tips for managing vomiting in infants and children:

Educate parents to stay calm.

Vomiting can be frightening for children and parents. Children will become exhausted, so rest along with replacing the fluids lost is extremely important. Reassure parents that their child will most likely feel better within 24 hours.1 Educate parents to wash their hands frequently with soap and water to avoid contracting the infection from their children. It can be challenging for parents to care for their children when they are sick themselves.

Prevent dehydration through oral rehydration therapy (ORT).

Sports drinks, sodas, and juices should be avoided in children since they contain inadequate sodium and too large a quantity of carbohydrates. After the child vomits, parents should wait about 30 minutes for the stomach to settle before initiating ORT. Recommend an ORT solution such as Pedialyte, which is available over-the-counter. The estimated electrolyte requirements are based on weight (Table 1).

Body Weight (pounds)

Electrolyte Solution Requirements (ounces in 24 hours)













If an infant vomits an entire feeding more than once and is exclusively breastfeeding, then the baby should be breastfed for shorter periods of time (5 to 10 minutes at a time) every 2 hours. 2 The feeding time can be increased as the infant is able to tolerate, and after about 8 hours the normal breastfeeding schedule can be resumed.2

Formula-fed infants should receive about 2 teaspoons (10 ml) of an unflavored electrolyte solution every 15-20 minutes with a spoon or an oral syringe.2 Juice (about 3 ml) can be added to the electrolyte solution for infants 6 months and older as a flavor enhancer.2 The solution amount can be increased once the infant can tolerate the solution without vomiting for more than 2 hours. Formula can be restarted after the infant goes more than 8 hours without vomiting.

Children 1 year of age and older should receive ORT in small amounts every 15 minutes.2 Other clear liquids include ice chips or sips of water, broth, and gelatin desserts.

Educate parents to watch for the following signs and symptoms of dehydration:2

  • Dry or sticky mouth
  • Few or no tears when crying
  • Sunken eyes
  • Sunken soft spot in babies
  • Urinating less frequently or fewer wet diapers
  • Dry, cool skin
  • Irritability
  • Drowsiness or dizziness

If children do not improve after receiving ORT, then they may need intravenous fluids in the hospital.

Keep children off of solid foods for 24 hours after vomiting.

Solid foods should be avoided for about 24 hours. The BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast) is an effective way to reintroduce food after vomiting. These bland foods can help children ease into normal eating. Once these bland foods are tolerated, then a normal diet can gradually be reintroduced.

Diet for Vomiting and Diarrhea (Infant/Toddler)

Vomiting and diarrhea are common in babies and young children. They can quickly lose too much fluid and become dehydrated. This is the loss of too much water and minerals from the body. This can be serious and even life threatening. When this occurs, body fluids must be replaced. This is done by giving small amounts of liquids often.

For babies, breastmilk or formula is the best fluid. Breastmilk can help reduce how serious the diarrhea is. But if your child shows signs of dehydration, their healthcare provider may tell you to use an oral rehydration solution. This can replace lost minerals called electrolytes. It can be used in addition to breast or bottle feedings. Oral rehydration solution may also reduce vomiting and diarrhea. You can buy it at grocery stores and pharmacies without a prescription. 

In cases of severe dehydration or vomiting, a child may need to go to a hospital to have IV (intravenous) fluids.

Giving liquids and feeding

For breast or formula feedings:

  • Continue the breast or formula feedings. Do this unless your healthcare provider says otherwise.

  • If you use formula, the healthcare provider may tell you to try a different kind of formula. A common cause of vomiting in newborns is a problem with formula.

  • Give your baby short, frequent feedings. Feed every 30 minutes for 5 to 10 minutes at a time over a period of 2 to 3 hours. This will help give your baby more fluids.

  • If vomiting or diarrhea doesn't stop, the provider may tell you to give a formula with no lactose, or low lactose. Lactose is a milk sugar that can be hard to digest. Follow the provider's advice about what type of formula to give your baby.

If using oral rehydration solution:

  • Follow the healthcare provider's instructions when giving the solution to your baby. Oral rehydration solution may be alternated with breast or formula feedings.

  • Use only prepared, purchased oral rehydration solution. Don't make your own solution.

  • Give your baby short, frequent feedings. Feed every 30 minutes for 2 to 3 hours. This will help replace lost electrolytes.

  • If vomiting or diarrhea gets better after 2 to 3 hours, you can stop the oral rehydration solution. Resume breastmilk or full-strength formula for all feedings.

For children on solid foods:

  • Follow the diet your child's healthcare provider advises.

  • If desired and tolerated, your child may eat regular food.

  • If unable to eat regular food, your child can drink clear liquids such as water, or suck on ice chips. Don't give high-sugar fluids such as juice or soda. Give small amounts of food and drink often.

  • If clear liquids are tolerated, slowly increase the amount. Alternate these fluids with oral rehydration solution as your healthcare provider advises.

  • Your child can start a regular diet 12 to 24 hours after diarrhea or vomiting has stopped. Continue to give plenty of clear liquids.

Follow-up care

Follow up with your child’s healthcare provider, or as advised. If a stool sample was taken or cultures were done, call the healthcare provider for the results as instructed.

Call 911

Call 911 if your child has any of these symptoms:

When to get medical advice

Call your child’s healthcare provider right away if any of these occur:

  • Fever (see "Fever and children" below)

  • Belly (abdominal) pain that gets worse

  • Constant lower right abdominal pain

  • Repeated vomiting after the first 2 hours on liquids

  • Occasional vomiting for more than 24 hours

  • Continued severe diarrhea for more than 24 hours

  • Blood in vomit or stool (black or red color)

  • Refusal to drink or feed

  • Dark urine or no urine for 8 hours, no tears when crying, sunken eyes, or dry mouth

  • Fussiness or crying that can't be soothed

  • Abnormal drowsiness

  • New rash

  • More than 8 diarrhea stools in 8 hours

  • Diarrhea lasts more than 1 week on antibiotics

Fever and children

Use a digital thermometer to check your child’s temperature. Don’t use a mercury thermometer. There are different kinds and uses of digital thermometers. They include:

  • Rectal. For children younger than 3 years, a rectal temperature is the most accurate.

  • Forehead (temporal). This works for children age 3 months and older. If a child under 3 months old has signs of illness, this can be used for a first pass. The provider may want to confirm with a rectal temperature.

  • Ear (tympanic). Ear temperatures are accurate after 6 months of age, but not before.

  • Armpit (axillary). This is the least reliable but may be used for a first pass to check a child of any age with signs of illness. The provider may want to confirm with a rectal temperature.

  • Mouth (oral). Don’t use a thermometer in your child’s mouth until they are at least 4 years old.

Use the rectal thermometer with care. Follow the product maker’s directions for correct use. Insert it gently. Label it and make sure it’s not used in the mouth. It may pass on germs from the stool. If you don’t feel OK using a rectal thermometer, ask the healthcare provider what type to use instead. When you talk with any healthcare provider about your child’s fever, tell them which type you used.

Below are guidelines to know if your young child has a fever. Your child’s healthcare provider may give you different numbers for your child. Follow your provider’s specific instructions.

Fever readings for a baby under 3 months old:

Fever readings for a child age 3 months to 36 months (3 years):

  • Rectal, forehead, or ear: 102°F (38. 9°C) or higher

  • Armpit: 101°F (38.3°C) or higher

Call the healthcare provider in these cases:

  • Repeated temperature of 104°F (40°C) or higher in a child of any age

  • Fever of 100.4° F (38° C) or higher in baby younger than 3 months

  • Fever that lasts more than 24 hours in a child under age 2

  • Fever that lasts for 3 days in a child age 2 or older

Diet for diarrhea in a 1-year-old child

When a child is sick, it is always a serious test for a family. Moreover, if the baby has vomiting, frequent loose stools, fever, he refuses to eat. In such cases, parents naturally face the question: what to do?

The first thing to do is to see a doctor. In most cases, this condition is associated with an acute intestinal infection and can lead to serious consequences for the baby. And timely treatment allows you to quickly deal with the problem.

The second significant issue facing the parents of a sick child is the issue of proper nutrition. Unfortunately, you can still find recommendations to stop feeding a child during diarrhea, but this should not be done categorically.


It has been proven that "water-tea" breaks and starvation diets significantly weaken the protective functions of the child's body and lead to a delay in recovery processes in the intestines. Therefore, at present, most pediatricians insist on the mandatory continuation of the child's nutrition in case of acute intestinal infections, but with the obligatory consideration of the latest achievements in nutrition.

The main principles for managing the nutrition of a child with diarrhea should be:

Phased The development of the disease has a staging, each stage must correspond to certain approaches to diet therapy
Accounting for the age of the child Each age should have its own products and its own schemes for their purpose
Accounting for the severity of the disease

There are three main stages of diet therapy. The first stage corresponds to the acute period of the disease, when the maximum manifestations of the disease are noted (vomiting, loose stools, fever), and the child may refuse his usual diet. During this period, proper nutrition is an integral part of treatment. And the success of treatment largely depends on the correct organization of diet therapy in a child.

The second stage is the recovery period. There are no longer those manifestations of the disease that were noted in the baby in the acute period, the child has an appetite, he becomes more active, but it must be remembered that any acute intestinal infection leads to significant changes in the child's body. This is a violation of the microflora of the gastrointestinal tract, and dysfunction of enzyme systems, bile secretion and other digestive processes. It takes time to restore the correct functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, which requires a sparing diet at this stage. Violation of the diet during this period can lead to the formation of a chronic pathology of the gastrointestinal tract.

The third stage of diet therapy is aimed at a gradual transition to the usual diet for this baby. Breastfed babies should continue to breastfeed. If the baby is bottle-fed, the doctor will prescribe a formula that matches the baby's condition. In children older than one year, it is necessary to exclude whole milk from the diet, they are also shown the appointment of fermented milk products as a diet therapy, the favorable properties of which are due to a number of positive qualities: the presence of lactic acid gives the product pronounced bactericidal properties and inhibits the growth of pathogenic microflora, the positive effect of these products on intestinal microbiocenosis, the secretory function of the digestive glands and intestinal motility, and they also have immunomodulatory properties.

One of the important components of diet therapy is the use of dairy-free cereals with pro- and synbiotics. Clinical studies have shown that the appointment of this diet therapy contributes to a more rapid relief of the main symptoms of intestinal dysfunction, as well as the restoration of intestinal microflora.

Select foods for the diet

It is most correct to start with rice porridge, as it has pronounced sorption properties and helps to stop diarrhea. As the child recovers, oatmeal and buckwheat porridge can be included in the diet.

Vegetables and fruits are an important component in the first stage of diet therapy. Preference should be given to products that contain pectin (baked apple, boiled carrots), as they contribute to the sorption of pathogens and their toxins. At the first stage of diet therapy, the use of fresh vegetables and fruits, as well as juices, is not shown.

The second stage - the patient's condition improves, the child becomes active, appetite improves, and in some children it even becomes elevated, which is often perceived by parents as a signal for increased nutrition. It is absolutely impossible to do this, since the child's body has not yet recovered from the disease. During this period, it is necessary to continue eating sour-milk, lactose-free and low-lactose products. An obligatory component of diet therapy is the use of nutrition with probiotics.

The third stage is the gradual expansion of the diet according to the age of the child. At this stage, the most justified is the widespread use of probiotic foods in order to restore and maintain the function of the gastrointestinal tract and its microbiocenosis.

What to feed a child with diarrhea at first?

  • freshly cooked rice;
  • bananas;
  • natural apple juice;
  • boiled potatoes;
  • boiled chicken meat;
  • crackers and stale bread;
  • lean fish;
  • weak tea.

What can a child eat when vomiting

Vomiting in a person can appear for a variety of reasons, but most often it is caused by food poisoning and other disorders of the normal functioning of the digestive system. Quite often vomiting is repeated several times. Together with vomit, the remnants of poor-quality food, pathogenic bacteria and other objects that have entered the digestive organs are removed from the gastrointestinal tract. After vomiting, a person often has weakness and weakness. In this regard, the question arises of what to eat after vomiting, so as not to provoke a second attack and restore strength.

What can you eat after vomiting?

Vomiting loses quite a lot of fluid, which must be replaced. Therefore, after vomiting, you should drink more pure water, weak tea and diluted juices. But milk and soups are better not to eat. In addition to fluid, when vomiting, the body also loses minerals. To replenish them, you can drink apple and cranberry juices, to which a pinch of salt and sugar is first added. You should drink often in small portions of about 30-50 ml, so as not to irritate the stomach and not cause a new attack of vomiting. In this case, the drink should not be too cold or hot, the best option is body temperature.

Experts believe that after vomiting it is better to start eating carbohydrate foods, such as gelatin jelly. Also, after vomiting, you can eat crackers, crackers or toast, if they do not contain oil. We must not forget about protein foods, as it is necessary for a person. In this capacity, chicken breast or fish is suitable. Only the dish should be steamed or boiled. Other options for eating after vomiting are chicken soup and rice noodles, but in this case, you should try to remove all the fat from the surface of the soup.

It is better to avoid fatty foods for the first time. This is due to the fact that fats remain in the stomach for a long time and contribute to the development of flatulence and bloating.

So, after vomiting, you can eat carbohydrate and light protein foods and drink warm, non-irritating drinks, but fatty foods, seasonings, fried and spicy foods should be excluded for the time being.

What can you eat after a child vomits?

In the first few hours after vomiting, the child usually refuses to eat because the stomach is still irritated. Do not force feed your baby. Therefore, the question of what a child can eat after vomiting becomes relevant only after 4-5 hours. For infants, it is difficult to advise anything more suitable than mother's milk.

Older children can be given buckwheat or rice porridge boiled with milk diluted 1 to 1 with water. In any case, food should be sparing. Other foods that can be given to a child after vomiting are:

  • cottage cheese, starting from the second day, the first portion is not more than 20 g;
  • vegetable puree;
  • low-fat soups and semi-liquid dishes;
  • boiled lean meat, preferably in the form of a soufflé or jelly.

When choosing a cooking method, preference should be given to baking, boiling or steaming. To restore normal digestion, the baby can be given dried bread or crackers.

The following foods should be excluded from the child's diet after vomiting: raw fruits and vegetables, sour and freshly squeezed juices, sweets, chocolate, fresh bread, and everything spicy and fried.

After vomiting, what can an adult eat?

Adults, like children, should avoid eating immediately after vomiting. But since a lot of fluid and minerals are lost along with the vomit, the water-salt balance should be restored. To do this, the patient is given a sufficient amount of drink, preferably containing minerals. In this capacity, special solutions sold in pharmacies are best suited. In addition to them, you can drink sweetened weak tea, fruit drinks and mineral water.

The first meal should take place approximately 5-7 hours after the end of vomiting. A sparing diet is usually designed for several days. For this period, all fatty, fried and spicy dishes, fresh fruits and vegetables, milk and its derivatives, acidic foods are removed from the menu.

Adults after vomiting can eat low-fat broth, to which you can add a little bit of vegetables: cauliflower, potatoes and onions, as well as crackers. You can eat fish and lean meat, steamed or boiled. Other acceptable products are: cereals on the water, biscuits, dryers, crackers and crackers.

If you feel well, then the diet is expanded by introducing baked or stewed vegetables into it. Then fresh fruits, dairy products are added to the menu, and at the last stage, fried, fatty and spicy dishes, that is, there is a transition to the usual diet.

What can you eat after vomiting and diarrhea?

When deciding what to eat after vomiting and diarrhea, you first need to know the list of foods that should be avoided. These include: lard, canned food, pearl barley, barley and millet cereals, fresh fruits, spicy, fried and fatty foods, milk and its derivatives, coffee, meat, cocoa, sausages, sweets, fresh pastries and more.

The first meal should be a small cup of chicken broth or semi-liquid mashed potatoes prepared without milk and butter. You can also boil rice or buckwheat porridge in water and drink a glass of weak tea with breadcrumbs. If the patient does not want to eat, then food can be abandoned in favor of a plentiful warm drink.

On the second day after vomiting and diarrhea, you can eat mashed light meals such as rice porridge, jelly, chicken broth, and boiled chicken meat. In this case, you should eat often, in small portions. Abundant drinking is preserved on this day. You need to monitor the temperature of the food, it should not be cold or hot.

Meals on the following days depend on how the person feels. It is advisable to maintain a sparing diet for a few more days, gradually introducing familiar and favorite dishes into the diet. At this time, decoctions and compotes from dried fruits, mashed potatoes, rice broth, boiled lean meat, rosehip broth, mashed carrots and crackers are best suited.

What to eat after vomiting

As already mentioned, in the first few hours after vomiting, it is better not to eat at all. The first meal should be about 4-5 hours. It is best to eat the following foods after vomiting:

  • low-fat broths and light soups;
  • rice water or porridge in water;
  • dried black bread;
  • boiled meat and fish;
  • gelatin jelly;
  • crackers;
  • apple or potato puree.

But the following foods should be limited until normal digestion is restored: butter, sweets such as cookies, jam, chocolate, rolls, sweets, etc.; oily fish, fried and spicy foods, canned food, tomatoes, coffee, ketchup, mayonnaise, sausage, vegetables and fresh fruits, spices, fatty meats and fish.

Any disease implies its own restrictions and preferences in nutrition, which are called diet. It is especially important to adhere to it for children, since their body is on the way of formation, and diseases can provoke irreparable developmental disorders. Vomiting is a sign of completely different pathologies, starting with infections and ending with heat stroke, and you need to immediately correct nutrition if it is present. The doctor should decide what to eat for a child with vomiting, since everything depends on each specific case. But some general principles are always observed.


If the child feels sick, let alone vomits, he will not want to eat. Do not offer food, let alone force to eat. But then what is there when a child vomits? Nothing, but you need to drink enough water. Due to dehydration, an increase in acetone is possible. Good decoctions of chamomile or mint, which reduce the feeling of nausea and are anti-inflammatory agents. The water-salt solution helps to restore the amount of fluid and nutrients in the body, so drinking it is not only indicated, but mandatory. Many people recommend weak sweet black tea, but be careful here. With some gastrointestinal diseases, and even more so with diabetes, this method of replenishing fluid and glucose is unsafe.

What can be eaten when a child vomits, if he really asks to eat? It is worth limiting yourself to a decoction of rice cereals or jelly. Nothing else is possible.

It is absolutely impossible for a child to eat with vomiting and diarrhea - you should consult a doctor and, if necessary, wash the stomach and intestines (about diarrhea in a one-year-old child).

After vomiting

If the disorders are caused by chronic diseases, it is up to the attending physician to decide what to eat after vomiting. In all other cases, it is worth adhering to strict restrictions for about three days, allowing you to eat a small amount of food every 2.5-3 hours. Among the allowed products:

  • thin, well-boiled rice, oatmeal and buckwheat porridges;
  • kissels, especially from blueberries, cornelian cherry, black currants;
  • biscuits or white bread croutons.

On the second or third day, you can introduce low-fat dairy products - cottage cheese, kefir (For example, from Agush), yogurt, offer vegetable soup without legumes. The use of raw vegetables and fruits, as well as other cereals, is introduced later, gradually, starting with bananas. Chicken or rabbit meat, minced. Suitable meatballs, steam cutlets. It is much more difficult to choose a diet for someone who has suffered poisoning. In this case, the three-day restrictions are stretched for at least 2 weeks. Despite hunger and whims, portions should be small, food only boiled and steamed, in the second week - baked. Introduce healing mineral water into the drink. You can start eating meat products little by little in the second week. All food at this stage should be soft, chopped. Crackers must be soaked.

Infant nutrition

What should a baby eat after vomiting? Exclusively mother's milk. After 2-3 days, you can gradually return to feeding, starting with products that were introduced no earlier than two weeks ago. If the child is bottle-fed, these days you will have to replace the usual diet with rice water, gradually introducing skim milk into it.

When returning to feeding, juices and raw fruits and vegetables should be offered last, all food must be grated. At any hint of a return of problems, an urgent appeal to the pediatrician should follow.

It is important to pay attention to the baby's preferences. What the child should eat, he must decide, but choose from the allowed products. Then the diet will be psychologically easier to tolerate, recovery will begin faster and more actively.

Neither an adult nor a child can be insured against food poisoning. With the appearance of such unpleasant symptoms as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, pain and discomfort in the abdomen, sometimes tachycardia and fever, the child's appetite disappears by itself, as the body must get rid of uninvited guests in the form of pathogens and toxins.

It has been proven that fasting for the first few hours after the onset of symptoms of poisoning has a healing effect in itself, as it unloads the digestive and enzymatic systems, allowing you to start fighting the cause of infection and its consequences.

However, abstaining from food for more than a day is no longer so useful for a growing body that needs reinforcement, so parents should know what to eat when children are poisoned.

To eat or not to eat?

Organizing the nutrition of a child in case of poisoning in its acute stage is reduced to maintaining the correct water-salt balance in the body, which can be disturbed. Since there is no appetite at first, the question of what children can eat when poisoned is not worth it at all.

As a result of vomiting and diarrhea, a large amount of fluid and salts are lost, the deficiency of which must be replenished.

Metabolic processes occur with the direct participation of water, so its lack is fraught with dehydration, increased body temperature, even greater intoxication and deterioration. In severe cases of dehydration without hospital care, the child may even die, and the younger the baby, the higher the risk.

When vomiting, it is pointless and even harmful to give the baby water to drink in glasses, because a new attack provoked by a large amount of liquid can deprive the body of even more water than the child drank. Therefore, the liquid is given one tablespoon 15 minutes after an attack of vomiting. If after 15 minutes the attack does not recur, give another spoon. Otherwise, the interval is increased, and the amount of water is reduced to 1 teaspoon.

The best food is salt water. Rehydration therapy

Drinking liquid for acute poisoning is prepared as follows: for 200 ml of water, take one teaspoon of salt and sugar. Salt allows fluid to linger in the body, sugar will make up for the loss of energy. Drinking temperature matters: warm liquids are absorbed faster than hot or cold liquids.

You can prepare solutions for drinking, which are sold in a pharmacy. Turning to the pharmacist, you need to ask for rehydration therapy drugs. The specialist will suggest mixtures suitable for the child.

Reintegration therapy should be carried out until vomiting and diarrhea disappear.

Appetite sprung

It is possible to offer a child something more substantial than rehydration drinks no earlier than 6-10 hours after the acute stage of poisoning.

If, as a result of the therapeutic measures prescribed by the doctor, the vomiting has disappeared and the pain in the abdomen has subsided, this means that the baby can eat. In case of poisoning, children during this period can be offered a rosehip broth or sweetened tea, preferably chamomile, with a small lean cookie, a slice of yesterday's bread or a cracker.

Vegetables and fruits in the diet

When health improves and intoxication symptoms gradually disappear, the child may feel hungry.

What can children eat now if they are poisoned? The best choice is pureed vegetable soup. You can salt it, but it is not recommended to use butter for dressing.

Fruits can be used to make compote, and a baked apple can be offered to a child as a dessert. It is believed that this dish helps to remove toxic substances from the intestines and has a beneficial effect on digestion.

Steamed cauliflower and broccoli are of particular nutritional value to children during illness.

But for the time being, you should refrain from raw vegetables and fruits, as well as fresh and packaged juices.

Protein foods, fish and meat

Perhaps the baby will not refuse a hard-boiled egg.

Fried eggs, like scrambled eggs cooked in a pan with butter, are not included in the list of what you can eat.

In case of poisoning, it is better to give the child a tender steam omelette made with water instead of milk. It can be prepared directly in a glass jar placed in a container of boiling water.

All types of store-bought sausages and frankfurters, as well as semi-finished meat products, are strictly contraindicated during this period.

Is it possible to feed a child with homemade meatballs, meatballs and dumplings when poisoned, it will become clear when the appetite is restored, and the negative symptoms of poisoning have disappeared.

But during the week it is better to refrain from heavy meals, replacing meat with lean fish, steamed, egg and chicken broth.

Dairy products

If the baby likes dairy products, you can offer him cottage cheese, but only the one that can be eaten in case of poisoning. The child is prepared low-fat crumbly cottage cheese with a small amount of sugar or a spoonful of jam with the permission of the doctor. You can soften the dish with a tablespoon of any low-fat fermented milk product.

Fresh kefir or unflavoured yogurt is preferable to milk because it is easier to digest and has a beneficial effect on the digestive tract.

What can be given to a child with cereal poisoning? Rice, buckwheat, oatmeal cooked in water are best suited. For a change, cereals can be added to vegetable soups, and when the baby's condition improves, you can cook them in chicken or fish broth.

Peas, beans and beans, because of their ability to cause increased gas formation in the intestines, are not included in the list of what you can eat after poisoning a child. But if there is a stable improvement in the condition, they will not cause harm.
