What foods can you eat after traveler's diarrhea?

ANSWER

  • If you do not feel like eating solid foods at first, you may start the BRAT diet -- bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast -- or salted soda crackers, boiled potatoes, and cereals after 24 hours.
  • Avoiding dairy products for the first 24 hours may help.
  • Slowly advance to regular foods.
