Depends on severity: Normal, healthy school children can get stomach flu or food poisoning symptoms occasionally. One usually vomits until his stomach is empty, which is why it is important NOT eat or drink for a few hours afterwards. Then a usual treatment is small amounts of Pedialyte or broth, maybe 1-2 ounces every half hour while awake. If worrisome symptoms, very young, very old, or very frail, doctor can check.
