2. What and When to Eat

Doctors recommend letting the stomach rest for at least six hours after vomiting or diarrhea. Drink frequent but small amounts of water to stay hydrated. Later, try clear liquids such as bone broth, apple juice, weak tea, or flat soda. The next day, eat small portions of BRAT diet foods and other foods such as oatmeal, grits, crackers, or porridge. Reintroduce soft foods such as cooked vegetables, fruit, or soft-cooked eggs on day three.
