Pediatric Vomiting and Diarrhea Prevention
Vomiting and diarrhea can be caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites. It can also be triggered by foods that are either of low nutritional value, such as sweets, and by undercooked meat or fish.
Help Reduce Your Child’s Risk of Vomiting and Diarrhea
- Make sure your child eats a healthy diet
- Understand the rules of food safety – from washing produce to properly cooking meats
- Make sure your child (and you) regularly washes his/her hands. Most infections that cause diarrhea are caused by a virus found in feces.
- Dispose of dirty diapers properly
