Being from Michigan, I would add Vernor's Ginger Ale to the list. It does actually have ginger in it, which is soothing to the stomach, and helps with the nausea. I don't know how available it is outside of Michigan, though...

I agree. My mom ( the nurse) always gave me ginger ale and saltine crackers. If I could handle that then dry toast or english muffin. My other suggestion is don't eat anything that you wouldn't want to taste if it comes back up. Think bland foods not something like Indian food. And drink lots of fluids.

selzer Whenever we were doing the barfing thing, my mom used to give us jello to keep us hydrated.

If we had strep throat, she would let us drink it warm.

soups are often kind of fatty, so they might make it worse.

For the real flu though, with the fevers and the chills, and all that stuff, soups are great, until you start taking meds, and then the appetite goes zip, and everything looks yucky.

Stomach flu is usually food poisoning. 24 hour bug. Usually starts about 20 minutes to an hour after exposure. If it wasn't something you ate, you can definitely get it from dog food and nasty dog treats, like pigs' ears, jerky strips, bully sticks and the like.

Always scrub your hands with soap after contacting dog food and treats.

LoveDogs I remember doing my nursing clinicals and a patient told me that the BRAT diet was gross because everything was so plain. I told him to put the applesauce on the toast. A few hours later he told me that it actually was good. I am not fond of applesauce unless it's homemade, so if you find the BRAT diet bland, try it.

Stosh Ginger ale, popsicles, Saltines, scrambled eggs

Liesje BRAT is what you feed kids/people who are recovering from a stomach flu: bananas, rice (plain), applesauce (plain), and toast (plain).

Zeeva Yes, IMO, those aren't such great choices. I know you're hungry but I'd fast it out for a while. Whatever is upsetting your tummy isn't going to let anything stay in there for long. If you must eat, maybe just a plain bagel or bread would be best...

I hope you feel better hun...
