The best thing that you can do for your child when they are nauseous is have your child rest and avoid activity. You should have them sit in a reclined chair rather than lying completely down in order to help more with the nausea problems.

While your child is resting, give them gentle clear fluids to sip on. Popsicles are also a great option and will help settle their stomach. You can also give them peppermint gum to chew on, which will help settle their stomach as well.

When your child is ready to start eating again, start slowly and only give them a small helping at a time. Stick with foods that are easy on the stomach, like toast, crackers and clear soups. You can also give them foods like rice and bananas to help settle their stomach.

The important thing to avoid when a child is nauseas is vomiting. Since vomiting can cause dehydration after an extended period of time, it is best to settle your child’s stomach and keep them hydrated.
