Health.com: Stomach Ache? What to Eat to Feel Better

2 of 11

Bananas

Bananas are the first item in the "brat" diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast), which has been used by generations to soothe bellies.

Bananas contain potassium, which you may need if you're dehydrated from vomiting or diarrhea, says Robynne Chutkan, MD, assistant professor in the division of gastroenterology at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC.

They also contain sugar so you get calories at a time when you're probably not eating much. But they're not so sweet it will make you nauseous, she adds.
