Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

If your family includes young children, it's a good idea to have commercially prepared oral hydration solution, such as Pedialyte, on hand. Adults can drink sports drinks and broths. Drinking liquids that contain a lot of sugar, such as soft drinks and fruit juices, can make diarrhea worse.

Smaller meals and a bland diet may help limit vomiting. Some foods to consider:

  • Soup
  • Starches and cereals, such as potatoes, noodles, rice or crackers
  • Banana
  • Yogurt
  • Broiled vegetables
