A Quick Tolerable Meal for a Toddler with a stomach bug

My daugter has had a stomach bug for a couple of days and she has been passing loose stools and some vomit.
We went to the doctor yesterday and I learnt the following;

  • That some antibiotics may even worsen you toddlers upset tummy 
  • That you should ensure you only serve up boiled foods as fried food would not be tolerated.
  • Solids like Rice, Potato and Noodles should be given to her; they are boiled and they would help solidify her stools.

Today with the feeding advice on my mind I quickly threw together this snazzy meal which my daugter enjoyed and tolerated

Irish Potato porridge made from;

  1. Irish Potatoes
  2. Carrots
  3. Green Peppers
  4. Minced Chicken [Pre-cooked]
  5. Salt
  6. Cubed seasoning
  7. Dollop of Pure Soya oil
  8. Blended Tomatoes mixed with some little pepper
  9. Onions
  10. Water

Put the peeled and cubbed potato pieces in water to boil.
When they have softened a bit add the blended tomato mixed with very little pepper.
Also add sliced onions and the cubbed/diced carrots
Next add the already cooked minced chicken, followed by a little dollop of pure soya oil.
Mix everything and mash some of the potato cubes to make a mashy base.
Lastly add the diced green pepper and a pinch of salt and a pinch of the cubed seasoning.
Mix all up and allow water to dry, leaving a mashy mix with some cubes of potato.

She wallooped everything, so I can assure you it is very tolerable. My son who is 4 also enjoyed the meal.
And best of all it was ready in 25 minutes.

Alas she also has stopped passing stools.
