Best Foods to Eat If You Start Feeling Sick
If you have a stomach flu, eating may be the last thing on your mind. If you can manage it, unflavored, unsalted crackers are a great food to eat. Saltines can help absorb excess stomach acids when you have thrown up everything else. Enjoy simple crackers and not cheese, butter, or herb flavored. While these may taste better, they could be too heavy on your sensitive stomach. When youre feeling up to it, add some natural nut butter on top of your crackers for protein and see how that goes down.
My doctor always recommends eating saltine crackers, or another bland cracker brand, as a way to reduce nausea associated with the stomach flu. Crackers work to quell nausea due to their high starch content, which effectively absorbs excess chinning stomach acid as well as pregnancyrelated morning sickness.
