How long to wait before taking solid food after diarrhea and vomiting?

Food after sickness. This will vary, but usually start with clears. If okay advance to soft, mushy food (banana, rice, oatmeal) and as better move to a regular diet. Don't overindulge too early and avoid the alcohol soda until better. Starting a probiotic can help your body's healthy gut bacteria recover faster. Drink lots of water.
