my 21 mo. daughter is also under the weather and not eating as much as usual. She ate applesauce, bananas, cheese and maple cream-or-wheat for me yesterday. making sure they get fluids is most important.

crackers, toast, popsicles, sherbert, pedialyte, juice. My daughter likes to eat alot of popsicles when she isnt feeling well,I try to buy the sugar free, made with real fruit kind. It is more important that a child stays hydrated when sick, so I offer her alot of juice or water.
