I hate it when my kids get sick and I really hate it when they can’t keep anything down. When the nasty stomach bugs hit our home we try to have a supply of ginger ale and foods for the BRAT/BOAT diet on hand. Sometimes though I find myself unprepared and I need to whip up a batch of this Homemade Pedialyte for the kiddos.
They also like to sip on some homemade bone broth when I have some ready. (aff link)
Toast (crackers count as well)
This helps a lot when I have kids who have been throwing up and/or may have diarrhea.
