Re: Kids have had diarrhea for over a week
The bland diet always works for us too (breads, cereal, rice, etc.) except we have never been able to tolerate the bananas and applesauce. Yes, stay away from dairy, meat, grease/oils, fruits and vegies. What helps is getting some good bacteria back in your colon. If you can tolerate vanilla or plain yogurt this is a good way to get some acidophilus back in your gut. You can also go to the healthfood store and get some probiotics which are always tolerated since they are just a pill without the dairy. The doc can tell you if this virus has been going around.
