The BRAT diet - bananas, rice, apples, toast (no butter) are good after food poisoning. Not crisps!

I'd advise lucozade sport (non fizzy), it has plenty of calories to perk you up. I lived on it alone for a week after getting bad food poisoning!

Crisps are fine! I'd just go with eating what you can stomach. For me that means s&v crisp sandwiches, and coke. Fizzy water is good too.

As long as you're keeping water down just eat what makes you feel better. Stay away from fatty and dairy because that will prob make you feel worse.

Dry toast and peppermint tea

Maybe a very ripe banana. If you don't feel like eating then you need to listen to your body. You don't need to eat at this stage. Just make sure you drink plenty of clear fluids.

Hope you feel we'll soon.

crisps are fine and so are any bland carb rich foods e.g. toast, pasta, rice, etc. There is no need to limit to the BRAT diet and I dont think it is recommended any more as it is low in protein and other nutrients. Could you try soup?
