In brief: Bland and simple
There is no special answer here except keep it bland and simple.
Usually you don't want anything more than this anyway. Avoid fatty foods that are heavy on the stomach. The main thing is to hydrate readily with sports drink and listen to your body - it has a way of telling you what to eat and what to avoid. Your appetite will return to normal as the illness passes.
