For starters, the most important thing that you can focus on is making sure that your child is staying hydrated. Since vomiting and diarrhea are common symptoms with the stomach flu, it is best to have them drink lots of fluids throughout the day. While water is one of the best options, you can also add to their fluid intake with juice, herbal tea and soups.

When it comes to diet, it is best to avoid processed foods and junk food because consuming these types of food can cause them to suffer longer. Instead, feed your child healthy food options like fruits and vegetables, rice and whole wheat bread. You should also make sure that your child is getting a great deal of rest throughout the time that they are having the stomach flu as well.
