My 2 year old vomited last night 5 times with no fever, no vomiting since but she now has a fever between 100 & 101f. Is this food poisoning or flu?

In brief: Fever and vomiting
Some food poisoning does have fever associated with it.
The time of onset of symptoms and history of other people who had the same food getting simialr symptoms can help. Also, viral gastroenteritis usually does not have blood in the stools. There is usually otyher children/adults who have been sick with viral gastorenteritis as well.

In brief: Infection
Food poisoning doesn't cause a fever.
This is an infection and would benefit from a physician evaluation if not improving.
