Eating after d and v

Think this is a stupid question but need to ask - ds age 4 had diarrhoea last night and vomited today, just bile, last time around 1pm
He is now howling saying he is hungry
Taking fluids fine
My temptation is not to let him eat til the morning

Same here. Ds has had bits and pieces since being sick since the other day.

No dairy but toast or something?

DD had toast with a scraping of jam about 15 hours after last upchuck on Monday, then a little bit of tiger bread with another teaspoon of jam. By teatime she was quite hungry and had scrambled egg and some beans. Normally I put a bit of milk in egg but did with water. Was fine to go back to school yesterday.

I usually give a bit of dry toast along with vimto to sip. The doctor recommended it because I couldn't get ds2 to take diorylaite and bugger me but it works a treat!

Cool, thanks all
Dry toast it is!

Current evidence is restricting food after D&V isn't a problem.
HOWEVER, I'd probably stick to BRAT like food - bananas, rice, apple, toast for a while.

Hope everyone is better soon
