hi,
First you should find out that why he doing so,is he ill or deficient in vitamines or is he anaemic,you go to your doctor and inquire about these problems
If he is fine then you find out his choice of things which he likes the best.
If he is reluctant to milk you can give with cereals or bournvita or any such type of things.
You can give fruits and fruit juices he likes best,you can give icecreams,tea and bread.
you can give good chocolates,this type of things children love and gradually you add few more things and try to make his taste accordingly.

Hi, I think I had a virus about 2 weeks ago. I vomited only for one day and was unwell (general) After that I m still not feeling good. I m burping all the time ( if I eat or don t eat) I feel a bit dizzy and have nausea...I also have the sensation there is something stuck in my throat I went to the doctor (twice) but she said everything was normal regarding my stomach and intestine... But I still have these uncomfortable symptoms now for a bit more than 2 weeks When I went to the doctor, I said I needed to go to the toilet (poo) many times a day (after eating specially but not diahrrea) and the poo had a different smell and consitency (mucus). At the second medical appointment, I asked for a blind treatment anti - worm (I m brazilian and in Brasil we sometimes take anti worms as precaution). Thinking of these symptoms I thougth it could be giardia (dizzy, tired, fullness, burping, nausea, slightly headache, different poo...) The doctor was a bit reluctant of giving me a blind treatment for giardisis but I instisted, once I m in touch with dogs and cats and a treatment anti - worm wouldn t be that bad in case it wasn t giardiasis I took 2g Metronidazol daily for 3 days but I still have the same symptoms (they are not really strong but I know I m not feeling good, not normal...) I m looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you, Caroline

Hi. I have had nausea (no vomiting), diarrhea, and excessive bloating along with burps that taste/smell like sulfur. This has been going on for 3 days. I had this same thing except with occasional vomiting about a month ago. In that case it would last 24 hours, stop for about 48 hours, begin again, then stop... Eventually I went to the ED and got IV nausea meds and fluid. This stopped it, but now it has started again. What can I do to stop this without going to the hospital again?

I was discharged from a hospital after an 8 day stay for an esophageal tear on Tuesday. I did not require surgery....instead it was 7 days of no food or liquids orally, 2 broad spectrum IV antibiotics, saline, and Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium as my electrolytes were very low as a result of dehydration. I had vomited for a 20 hour period. The rupture healed nicely on its own. Morphine for pain and something for the chronic nausea. I am home now, but not really feeling better. I still feel nauseous (the smell of food can be triggering as can movement) I have vomited twice after a spell of uncontrollable shaking, followed by vomiting and then profuse sweating. I think one episode was a gall bladder attack since I have a history. But, it happened again last night. My stomach in general is bothering me (bloated, gassy, achy). I am on a liquid diet, but I am struggling even with that. I also continue to feel very weak and my mood is low. Thoughts?

yes, I had a colonoscopy followed up by a barium and was diagnosed with dirvirtulosis . I believe this is a pouch in the colon. At present I have had diahrea for 5 days and my family doctor said it was dirvirticulosis. However I have not had any pain or vomiting. I have reflux to which I take Losec , which I know can cause some diahrea. He put me on antibiotics . what should my next step be?. I watch my diet and in the past have had regular bms sometimes 3 a day
