The stomach bug cast a plague on our house Tuesday night. It was the first time I had to watch my toddler battle through it, while we huddled together in a bath tub quarantine. As his appetite returned, I found ways to modify my own BRAT menu for his palate.
Here are some of the things that worked well for breakfast, lunch and dinner:
- Oatmeal (hold the milk, or use dairy-free such as almond milk)
- Toast (plain)
- Rice cakes – we like Happy Baby Organic Rice Cakes, Blueberry & Beet, 1.4 Ounce Bags (Pack of 10)
- Noodles (to be honest, he didn’t go for them but other kids might)
- Sweet potatoes
- Apple juice – we like Apple and Eve Sesame Street Organics, Big Bird’s Apple 4.23oz,36 Count
The good news is he recovered quickly, and knock on wood, mom and dad didn’t get it!
