when you have diarrhea, the foods that you eat and the foods that you avoid can be critical to helping you recover quicker. This is where BRAT foods come in.

BRAT stands for “bananas, rice, apples, toast.” These foods are bland, so they won’t aggravate the digestive system. They’re also binding, to help firm up stool.

Other foods that are included in the BRAT diet include:

cooked cereal like Cream of Wheat or farina
soda crackers
applesauce and apple juice
You also need to drink plenty of liquids so that you can stay hydrated and replace the fluids that you’re losing. Drink lots of water and suck on ice chips. Other liquids that you can try include:

clear broths, like chicken broth or beef broth, with any grease removed
electrolyte-enhanced water or coconut water with vitamins or electrolytes (try to avoid ones high in sugar)
solutions like Pedialyte
weak, decaffeinated tea
After you’ve started to recover, you can add in foods like scrambled eggs.
