    Hi,
    I've been ill since yesterday as in, being sick however today I feel a bit better and a little bit hungry. I want to avoid food which will make me even worse. I know I shouldn't eat fatty or salty food but would soup be ok?

    Soup should be ok. Depending what soup.
    Chicken and noodle or tomato I've found good.

    Toast is a safe option. And Maybe get some orange juice in you. Boost up the Vitamin C

    Bananas are good and Sprite or 7-up can be good if you are feeling nauseous.

    Vimto. I drink Vimto by the gallons when I'm ill. I think it's because I'm dehydrated, and it's the only thing I can handle drinking large amounts of without feeling bloated when I'm sick...


    Stay away from Pringles though :ninja:

    I always have rich tea biscuits for some reason. Also, soup and toast is good. Sip water or tea constantly but slowly. Hope you feel better soon!

    As a rule, something dry and non-fatty or non-greasy. If you've been very very sick then it's worth drinking something that will replace the salts you would have lost through dehydration. Something like Diralyte (not sure about the spelling) which you can get from most pharmacies, or even something like Lucozade Sports (the non-fizzy variety). Drinking plenty of fluids is always a good idea, water and squash are great.

    Dry biscuits like rich teas or digestives are good. It takes your stomach around a week to totally recover from a bout of nasty illness, so be gentle to it for a few days! Avoid things that are fried etc until the weekend!

    Hope you feel better
