      After food poisoning, what should you eat?

      After a bout of food poisoning, your stomach and gut need special care as they recover. The food to be consumed must be bland and nutritious foods that do not irritate the stomach. Clear liquids and drinks are also important in the rehydration process.

      Start recovery with fluids

      Food poisoning results in vomiting and diarrhea and this is likely to quickly dehydrate you. Rehydrate with plenty of fluids. Once the vomiting stops, start taking small sips of fluid. This could comprise water, flat soda, weak tea, broth or apple juice. If you find that you are struggling with vomiting again, wait for an hour or so to restart fluid intake.

      Go for the BRAT diet

      BRAT is an acronym for bananas, rice, applesauce and toast. This is the best kind of diet for people to recover as these foods are bland and high in starch. These work as a binder and bind stools together, thus preventing diarrhea. Bananas are abundant in potassium and will play a role in replacing lost electrolytes.


      These contain healthy bacteria that help in restoring and maintaining gut health.  Some of the probiotics you could choose include dairy products like live yogurt and kefir, and also fermented foods, such as sauerkraut.

      Other foods

      Clear broths, especially bone broths are a good choice to strengthen the body. Other good options that have a good nutritional content, blandness and starchiness include plain potatoes, low-sugar oatmeal, baked chicken without skin, turkey and saltine crackers.

      What to avoid

      When you are recovering from food poisoning, steer clear from dairy products, alcohol, fried, greasy or spicy foods, raw vegetables, and caffeinated sodas.

      Once you feel better, don’t instantly move to a normal diet. Stage by stage, introduce soft cooked eggs, cooked vegetables, stewed fruits, and chicken.
