Brief Answer:
food poisoning, acute gastroenteritis or common cold.

Detailed Answer:
Can understand your concerns.

Fever with stomach ache and contact with water could be due to food poisoning, common cold, or acute gastroentritis.
Since, she ate from outside 2 to 3 days back, and also there is pain abdomen chances of food poisoning are more.
Common cold can be a cause because she was in contact with water today.
Acute gastroentritis can also present like this.
If I was your treating doctor, I would have given
Syrup of ofloxacin 3 times a day for 3 days, new line
Syrup cyclopam 3 times a day for 1 day for pain abdomen.
Syrup Paracetamol for fever.
However, since these are prescription medicines, I advise you to meet the local doctor to confirm the diagnosis and for dosage of drugs.

I hope this will help you.
Wishing your child health point.
Take care.
