Probably viral but..: It is impossible to know for certain from these symptoms, but the most likely cause is a viral infection, possibly roseola, which is common in 3 yo's & has high fever with few other symptoms (though vomiting can be one of them).

Could be.: Viruses are common causes for vomiting, poor digestion and loose stools. Fever is not always present. Food items and "other" ingestions may contribute. If your 3 year old is otherwise doing well keeping things down, you should be in the clear for a quick recovery. Don't be surprised if appetite is not up to speed.
