Hello, Thanks for the query.
You are four member and that too weekend.
All are ill and having vomiting and stomach cramps ( excruciating pain).
So note one point that all you have took same food and the culprit is in the food i.e. food poisoning .
In food poisoning there is severe pain in abdomen ( stomach and intestine), vomiting, mild degree shivers and tremors ( mild).
Due to intolerance of these child feels more pain that too for second day ( pain threshold of different persons are different).
Use bacteria free water and food .
Good luck for the whole family. Dr, HET
