Viral illness: He may have viral gastroenteritis. Give him a bland diet, nothing greasy or fried, stay away from milk and juice for a few days. Substitute electrolyte containing fluids like pedialyte.

Go to a doctor now: If you are vomiting coffee ground colored material, you should be seen by a doctor. Please make an appointment as soon as possible. It is very important to determine if there is bleeding in the stomach that could be causing the symptoms.

Motion sickness : It is not unusual for some kids to have motion sickness when they are in a moving vehicle. It may help if you teach to look up and out the window when in the bus. Concentrate on something far away, and he will not feel sick as before. Hope that helps
