“I Knew I Shouldn’t Have
Eaten That Old Crab Dip!”
Causes of food poisoning include viruses, parasites, and bacteria—over 250 different foodborne diseases exist! Symptoms of food poisoning can be different depending on the cause, but two of the most common symptoms are vomiting and diarrhea.
Vomiting and diarrhea caused by food poisoning can be severe over a short period of time. You or your little one may be losing electrolytes and fluids at a faster rate than can be easily replaced. And on top of all the other food poisoning symptoms, dehydration can make you or your kids feel even worse. See the Lyte and start with small sips of Pedialyte every fifteen minutes to help you or your family rehydrate and feel better fast.
You or your little one will typically improve within 48 hours after food poisoning symptoms first appear. Here are some things that can help everyone feel better in the meantime.
Rehydrate with Pedialyte
Take small sips of Pedialyte every 15 minutes
Eat Plain Foods
Start with small bites of bland foods such as crackers, rice, and bananas
Take It Slow
Don’t eat dairy or fatty foods and avoid caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine
Give your body a chance to recover
Rehydration Tip:If you start to feel nauseous, stop eating. When you feel better, start again with small sips of Pedialyte.
For over 50 years, the advanced science behind Pedialyte has helped people rehydrate after challenging moments of dehydration.* You may have used juice, sodas, and sports drinks in the past to help you or your family rehydrate after food poisoning, but these drinks are often too high in sugar and too low in sodium (which is an important electrolyte ). When you or your little one is dehydrated from food poisoning, sugary drinks can actually make diarrhea worse. Pedialyte has an optimal balance of sugar and electrolytes that provides fast rehydration to help everyone feel better fast.
Fluid and electrolyte replacement can be hard when you or your kids are dehydrated from food poisoning. It can be hard to keep food and liquids down. So start with small sips of Pedialyte every fifteen minutes and increase the amount as you or your little one feel better.
