What's the best thing....
What's the best thing to eat when you have the flu? Like, when you're feeling like you'll vomit every time you try and eat. Is there anything that will calm my stomach? Or do I have to endure the nauseous feeling?

BRAT diet maybe? That's what my entire family does when someone is sick.
Toast (no butter)
If you have, say, toast, have one piece, and if you don't throw up or have any problems for an hour, try another piece of toast, or some rice. You get the idea.
Also, sprite. Open a can and put it in a cup with ice, then let it sit in the fridge and let it go flat. It helps your stomach.

Yeah; flat lemonade is good, chicken soup too if you can stand it. But avoid milk or yoghurt like the plague. Dairy products will make you feel sicker. O_o

*slaps forehead* Well that makes tonnes of sense now, all I have really had to eat was a milkshake. There goes that idea now, I might try apple sauce or something light later on.

Definitely make sure you drink plenty of fluids and keep warm. Hot squash might help, too; my mum used to make it for me with honey in it when I had the flu as a kid.

Toast with a little teeny splat of butter and cinnamon usually calms my stomach down; drinking cold water also helps calm stomachs down, NEVER warm water (I don't know what people are thinking when they say that helps, it makes it worse. O_o).

Toast with a little butter, ginger ale, saltine crackers, and broth.
That's what I eat when I'm sick. The ginger helps calm the stomach, and the bubbles do too. But don't gulp it! Just ssssippp. xD
