Is it okay to eat Saltine Crackers with the stomach flu?



Is it okay to eat Saltine Crackers with the stomach flu?

Sure, if you can tolerate them. Eat small amounts, though, because you don't want to get more nauseated. Most importantly, sip on fluids, to keep yourself from getting dehydrated. Stay away from dairy stuff until you start feeling better, though.
Good luck!
yes its very helpful for a stomach flu
my 6th grade teacher(im in 8th now) told me it soaks up the nasty stuff that makes your stomach hurt when your sick
Anything plain like Saltine Crackers is ok. That's what I eat when I have the flu.
Saltines do generally make your stomach feel better. My osteopathic doc (not an MD, but a DO) said that you can eat anything you want when you're sick. The "feed a cold, starve a fever" tale is hogwash. If it makes you feel better, go for it. If it makes you feel worse, then avoid it.
I'm a mom!
There is no such thing as "stomach flu". Flu is an upper respiratory illness. There are other viruses that attack the digestive system. Yes it is ok to eat saltines. It is also important to drink a lot of liquids to replace those lost through vomiting and diarhea.
Eat what you want. Crackers are traditional, and many people like to avoid dairy products, fatty foods, and spices because they tend to re-appear quickly, if you get my drift, but you're pretty well going to get over it in a few days in any case, and it's going to make little difference in the overall scheme of things. As a matter of fact, too much dietary restriction may sometimes even prolong recovery.
