DIET CHART FOR FOOD POISIONING

INTRODUCTION

Food poisoning (also known as food-borne illness) occurs when you eat or drink contaminated foods that contain harmful germs (bacteria, virus, or parasites). Bacteria produces toxins in food and causes the problem. The main symptoms of food poisoning are vomiting, diarrhea, and upset stomach. The BRAT diet is one of the main recoveries for food-borne illness. Also, a bland, low-fat, and low-fiber foods help to replace lost electrolytes. It is important to avoid caffeinated drinks, fatty foods, carbonated drinks, fried and junk food as these can irritate the stomach and may trigger the problem.
