Food Items To Limit

  1. Spicy food : In the case of food poisoning, spicy foods can irritate your stomach.
  2. Fried food and Heavy sauces : Foods that are heavier are not as easily digested and may temporarily worsen symptoms.
  3. Dairy : Some bacteria and viruses distort, shorten, and damage the villi that line the intestine.
  4. What made you sick in the first place : Wash hands before eating, use hand sanitizer if you don't have access to a sink. Avoid unpasteurized fruit juices and unpasteurized milk and milk products. Eat food that is fully cooked and served hot, and avoid tap water and ice.

Do's And Dont's

Do's & Dont's

  1. Keep in mind that not all cases of stomach upset are food poisoning. Your illness could be related to a virus, side effects from certain medications, and drinking too much alcohol. Of course, you can rule out two of those. If you haven’t recently drank too much and you haven’t started any new medication, you know that you either have a virus or food poisoning. Generally, there are enough differences in symptoms to recognize the difference between the two.
  2. Home care can often manage the symptoms of food poisoning to ease your discomfort until you recover. There are two main things to do: ease the nausea and avoid dehydration. You need to eat more bland foods while you recover from the food poisoning. Throughout the time that you are vomiting, eat foods like the following: Plain crackers, Rice, Plain bread & Bananas.
  3. You need to avoid any foods that could upset your stomach further. This would include anything fried or greasy, anything spicy, or foods that are overly sweet. Avoid taking any over the counter medications since they could actually aggravate your condition.
  4. If you are experiencing a great deal of nausea and vomiting, you are at risk of dehydration. To ensure you don’t become dehydrated, make sure you are getting enough to drink. Only choose clear fluids like water, juice, and sports beverages. Don’t drink soda, milk, coffee, or tea since they could make you feel worse.

Food Items You Can Easily Consume

  1. Banana : Potassium and sodium are the main ones your body needs, and they work together to help your body retain water for optimal hydration.
  2. Rice : It's pretty high in fiber, which is usually super healthy, but harder for your stomach to digest, so it's white rice all the way.
  3. Toast : White toast are among the simplest foods for your stomach to handle.
  4. Take a probiotic : If you end up taking antibiotics for whatever you have, not only do they (hopefully) kill the bug, but they also wipe out the good bacteria residing in your body.

Do not take ridol. Sounds like food poisoning. If water loss is making patient dehydrated then may need some iv fluid replacement. And a course of antibiotics at the max.
