Start with dry toast (ie no fat on it) with either marmite or honey or jam. You can also try a plain biscuit.
Then move on to plain food eg potato, pasta, maybe with a little sauce but no dairy.
I keep mine off dairy for 3 days and then only introduce it slowly, eg watered down milk with cereal, or a little butter on bread, and slowly build up to richer food.
There is also the BRAT recommendation: banana, rice, apple and toast.
My sympathies. I am going through the same at the moment. Although my dd's sickness is complicated by the fact that she also has a very heavy cold which is not helping her feel better the way she should.
Oh, I have just read your second post. Your dd has a cold too? That is the same as my dd. She had the cold for about 10 days and then the sickness on Saturday night. She is still bed bound at the moment, such is the way she feels. She is 10 years old though, so at least able to tell me how she feels.
I hope your little one perks up a bit soon. Don't expect too much today. My dd did not brighten up for a full 24 hours after the sickness.
Hi Galena, it sounds as if you and your DD have had an awful night.
I wouldn't rush to give her anything to eat, but if you think she's hungry, give her a dry biscuit or some toast to see if that stays down. If she likes stewed apples or mashed banana they would be a good idea too, but I would avoid dairy products or anything that's difficult to digest, like meat.
When my DSs have been as poorly as your DD has, it's usually taken a good week before they're interested in proper food again (strangely the first thing they want to eat when their appetite comes back is chocolate biscuits ).
