BRAT diet: Make sure he drinks fluids for a day or two, i suggest flavored pedialyte that can be frozen into ice cubes and crushed to make it novel for him; gradually add solids, like bananas, apple sauce, plain rice and boiled chicken chopped in it and toast with jam to start; we call this a brat diet and it is great after a bout of stomach virus; if he will not drink or eat call your child's doctor.
