    Basically what is asked in the thread title. I spent a lot of yesterday being sick but have since managed to keep down some toast, anyone got any suggestions for other foods which would be good to eat and help settle my stomach?

    Anything plain, crackers, more toast etc. Lots of water too. I think its mostly trial and error when it comes to sick person food.

    After you're sure you're on the mend, go for some dry toast. Sounds horrible but you need to get sustainance without eating something that could potentially make you sick again.


    Lots of lemonade with salt helps as well to rehydrate you.

    I can't eat porridge, the texture makes me retch.

    try redy brek then.
    when i was ill (used to be sick usually on a weekly baisis when little) id ALWAYS ask my mum to make me redy brek a few hours after, and if i could keep that down i might have upgraded to toast, and so on...

    Plain crackers, dry toast and flat lemonade with sugar :p:
    Yum.

    (That's just what my GP told me to have a few weeks ago when I was sick)

    Actually, if you've vomitted you should eat banana as it contains a lot of potassium, an electrolyte lost in vomit (hey i learnt something from my nursing course!)

    Lots of jelly, it's mostly just sugar and water. Thus if you throw it back up at least it comes up easier than scratchy lumpy bits of toast.

    Toast and Marmite always makes me feel better - the marmite is full of vitamins.
    Jelly is a good one too. Hope you feel better OP!

    I had a bug last month that had me throwing up for days, I couldn't even drink water one day I nearly had to be hospitalised. It took me a while to get back onto normal food again, but I found toast or scrambled egg on toast to be a good start. As said above jelly would be good as I found it hard to eat toast after mine, my throat felt like it had been burnt away Maybe try Angel Delight or rice pudding if you can handle milk. Soup as well, depending on if you still feel like getting sick a bit. I had those Actimel probiotic yoghurt drinks as well as my tummy wasn't good for weeks and well, to put it bluntly, the rest of my digestive system wasn't too good either. Peppermint tea can be nice and settling too.

    Thanks... I'm trying a plain jacket potato as I've managed to keep toast down this morning and yesterday night which considering yesterday morning I couldn't keep water down is definitely an improvement!

    As people have said, dried toast is always good after being sick =) Also a fizzy drink e.g. coke or lemonade is supposed to help to!

    Fluids, electrolytes and salt are essential and simple carbs where possible low in soluble fibre. About an hour later complex carbs will assist you retain fluids.
