In brief: Good hydration

Vomiting could be caused by many things including infection and reflux.
Small frequent feeds will help but no improvement withing a day or unable to keep hydrated, the child needs to be evaluated by a physician especially if there is fever.

In brief: Vomiting

It depends on the age of the child and the cause of the vomiting.
Usually, giving the child a break for an hour after the last episode of vomiting will give the stomach a break. Then introduce small amounts of clear liquids like gatorade or flat soda. A good amount to start with is a teaspoon every 5 minutes. I'd be happy to give you a more detailed response in an inbox consult or video chat

In brief: Supportive care

Usually the key is to keep them hydrated by giving small, frequent volumes.
They should be getting a little sugar and a little salt- for smaller kids, pedialyte is formulated properly; for older schoolkids and adolescents, who have more reserve, almost any clear liquids will do. Prolonged (>2 days) vomiting, high fevers, inability to take fluids, or vomiting in infants should be evaluated promptly.
