Kids diarrhoea - my experience
My child does not get diarrhea often. He gets diarrhea only when he is given antibiotics. Whenever he is given antibiotics he would get severe diarrhea that last for several days. It would take at least one week to cure the diarrhea caused by antibiotics. Through my experience as a mother I learned what all foods would cure diarrhea in children. First of all let me explain what all foods should be avoided for babies when they get loose motion.
Diet for diarrhoea in children
Milk and milk products should be avoided when baby is having loose motion. Fish need not be avoided. Eating fish has cured my baby’s diarrhea several times. Fish would make you constipated. So it would help cure diarrhea in children. When my baby gets loose motion due to antibiotics I do give him fish. Diarrhea would go off within a day. If your child gets diarrhea during hot season, you can avoid chicken and fish for few days. But fish can be given. Giving fish would help cure diarrhea.
