Maggie yes you can still get cherryade

I find that I fancy crisps (which I normally don't like much!) or something salty/savoury. It may be the loss of salts from the body? I would just try nibbling a few different things and not try a proper meal. Once your tummy has got used to a few things, it may crave more :-)

Iris, it's always tomato soup for me too :-D

It's also the only time I drink fizzy drinks - but it has/had to be cherryade!! (not sure if you can still get it!)

oo dont like kfc much at the best of times. gwyn we always keep ours off dairy as well

hubby offered me tom soup at lunch but still couldnt face it

have just had a few fork fulls of salad and avocado the only other thing i fancy and thought better off it was egg fried rice and duck in orange sauce from chinese.


Iris Report 25 Apr 2013 18:53

what about tomato soup ,I always fancy that when I am ill.


Jean Report 25 Apr 2013 18:46

When I had the sickness bug, I found kfc chips ok to eat, bit strange but it helped.

Interesting isn't it that we all have different 'remedies' for a poor appetite after a bug?
I used to starve my 3 children and give fluids only until the worst of the symptoms had gone, then it was bland light food until things got back to normal.

NO dairy was the rule here until they were better.

cottage cheese, probably best with a bit of flavour, I could only manage the pineapple one when convalescent - yoghurt, scrambled egg. anything you can just pick at with a spoon. drink skimmed milk

Tuc biscuits used to be the order of the day when any of mine had been ill and were recovering.
Maybe it was the salt, but the texture helped too and each one was not too big.

Keep up the fluids and get well soon.

Ginger biscuits are also good for when you are suffering with a sickly tummy.
Hope you feel better soon.


AnninGlos Report 25 Apr 2013 16:42

My first return to solid food is always either cream cracker and marmite (you have to fist like marmite though) or toast and marmite, then mashed potato or boiled rice.


Mauatthecoast Report 25 Apr 2013 16:40

After I've suffered with an upset tum I like chicken soup or creamy rice pudding.


ChrisofWessex Report 25 Apr 2013 16:37

Poached egg, chicken soup, mashed potato - all help to settle tummy. Hope you are better soon.

When I was pregnant and suffering from terrible morning sickness all day.the only thing I could keep down was Lucozade. Hubby spent lots on buying bottles of the stuff. Was also told before you raise your head off the pillow in the morning eat slowly a couple of dry cream cracker biscuits. It did help .

I had a bug too a couple of weeks ago and found when i was able to eat, cream crackers again were ok and didnt come back on me.

The main thing is to keep hydrated so drink as much as you can ,water probably the best, and eat what you what &when you feel and fancy something .


AnninGlos Report 25 Apr 2013 16:20

If you like avocado slice one up and eat it without bread. If you think about it, do you fancy sweet or savoury?

What about crisps (replace the salt you have lost) or little cheesy biscuits?

But as long as you drink plenty don't worry about not eating, you won't waste away. And your appetite will return. When I had that once I found nibbling a sharp hard apple was good.


Mayfield Report 25 Apr 2013 16:19

Tomatoes on toast, bread and sugar sandwich, tinned rice pudding, bananas and custard, do anything for your tast buds?

Hope the suggestions don't get you reaching for the sick bucket though!

Get well soon,
Mayfield :-D

When suffering pregnancy sickness all I wanted was lemonade. My doctor told me flat lemonade was good for settling my stomach that's why I wanted it.

Listen to your body telling you what it needs. It very likely needs a rest.

Get well soon :-)


Dawnieher3headaches Report 25 Apr 2013 15:59

BC no that dont tickle me either although avocado on its own might work think the toast has put me off bread

Sharron am on lemonade usually drink ice cold coke when like this but dont even fancy that
