What do you eat when ill?

I'm just getting over a tummy bug ... and all I want is cloudy apple juice and plain pringles. Same thing I lived on (for a day or two) after each CS.

At least I'm not craving those weird pudding cup things you get in North America, what with them being impossible to get here ...

What foods to other people want when ill (particularly when vomity ill)?

After a tummy bug I tend to have plain rice cooked in a bit of veg. stock.

It satisfies the craving for something salty that I tend to get (body wanting to replace lost salt??) and fills you up, getting rid of that empty stomach feeling

They're pudding in the north american sense -bit like premade angel delight? Come in tapioca, chocolate, butterscotch, etc etc. Don't need to be refridgerated.

Rice is deffo the thing you're meant to have. But cloudy applejuice and pringles (neither of which I can stand the rest of the time!) do it for me.

I can see a point to the tomato soup.

Is colcannon cabbage and potato? Something you ate a lot when little?
