Food poisoning, alas, is a fairly common problem. With the use of low-quality products, non-compliance with hygiene rules, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and sometimes - and much more severe symptoms may occur.

With mild forms of food intoxication, only "home" interventions are enough, but in difficult cases, or when intoxication in children, it is necessary to immediately seek professional help from doctors. In any case, the victim immediately has to deal with the elimination of toxins. But even after the removal of symptoms it is very important to help the body recover - this requires a proper diet after food poisoning.

Diet after food poisoning

The right diet after food poisoning is one of the most important measures to combat intoxication and its consequences. It is worth thinking about immediately after neutralizing the symptoms. As a rule, the whole gastrointestinal tract becomes inflamed when poisoning, as the mucous zone is irritated with vomiting and diarrhea. Therefore, after elimination of toxins, it is necessary to restore the damaged walls of the stomach, intestine, larynx.

The first point of the diet after food poisoning is a plentiful drink. Ideal option - water at room temperature (best - mineral without gas) with pharmacy salt preparations (Regidron, Gastrolit and others). Food on the first day is generally excluded, food can only be consumed from the second day after poisoning.

Diet after food poisoning in children

Children after intoxication must be fed with special attention and caution. Very little children should be given only water or juice. But in any case not lemon or orange. Also exclude cranberry juice and sweet fizzy drinks. Ideally suitable vegetable juices - beet, cabbage. Tea is also suitable, preferably green, but - it is important - not hot, since hot can cause irritation of the gastrointestinal tract. When the baby has an appetite, you can feed him with the first dishes: chicken broth, vegetable soups (for example, with broccoli).

Children's diet after food poisoning does not exclude the second dishes, but the products should be, first, light (the digestive system is still very tender and painful), and secondly - with rich useful substances. Fish, chicken breast, boiled potatoes, beets - that's an excellent diet after food poisoning for children. No beef, pork or sausage. Sweets and sauces like mayonnaise, too, delete.

Diet after food poisoning in adults

The diet after food poisoning should be extremely strict. Once again, we emphasize that in the first days it is better to eat nothing and drink more. However, in the early days, you hardly want to. But when the appetite still appears - you need to carefully monitor what you are going to fill the still weakened stomach.

Diet after food poisoning should be divided: eat five to seven times a day in small portions. To start better with very small portions, gradually increasing them. We cross out the menu of dairy and meat dishes (rabbit meat will do), as well as sour and sharp ones. More boiled vegetables (preferably fried) and vegetable soups (chicken broth, too, will do). A good option - boiled porridge, for example buckwheat or rice. Gallet biscuits also fit, as well as crackers - but in no way shop.


Diet after alcohol poisoning

Symptoms of alcohol intoxication, as a rule, almost do not differ from food. So after alcohol poisoning, as well as after food, you should drink as much liquid as possible, or even better - immediately wash your stomach.

Diet after alcohol poisoning should consist of light soups, mashed potatoes and cereals. Meat and fatty fish, food with an excessive amount of seasonings and sweets are excluded immediately. Also, we do not recommend using carbonated drinks. Coffee - you can, but not more than one cup. It's better to have sweet tea with lemon or honey. By the way, the diet after alcohol poisoning does not exclude the folk method - brine. It really reduces the level of acidity in the blood and helps to relieve symptoms.

What is the diet after food poisoning?

The first couple of days we limit ourselves only to a plentiful drink. If after the poisoning you have an appetite, then you are on the right track. You can not eat by force, in any case.

It's better to start with home-made crackers (fresh bread and baking diets after food poisoning excludes), grated boiled vegetables and mashed potatoes. On the third day, the diet can be varied with steam cutlets from chicken or turkey meat. Minced meat should be tender, several times passed through a meat grinder along with a piece of dried white bread. But without onions and garlic, and with a minimum of seasonings (or better without them at all). Later you can go on to the lean soup. However, it is not superfluous to emphasize that the diet after food poisoning excludes meat soups.

The diet menu after food poisoning

The diet after food poisoning in the first days involves more water and soft food in small portions: cereals, soups, steam meatballs and boiled vegetables. Later, when the body gets stronger, you can eat oatmeal on the water or a banana with compote from dried fruits. For lunch, vegetable soup or, again, steam cutlets (better from chicken meat) will do. Dinner - the same cutlets with rice garnish. Between these meals you can also douse the worm with biscuits and crackers. Before going to bed - a glass of compote with honey.

The main thing to remember is that portions should be small. The quantity and variety of food is increased gradually. Diet after food poisoning - strict, but only so you can restore the strength of the body.

Diet recipes after food poisoning

The first point of the diet after food poisoning, not counting a large amount of water, is bread crumbs of white bread. But the store does not fit, they need to be prepared by ourselves: cut the bread into pieces in half a centimeter, a little drying in the oven or in a frying pan (only without oil) and watch so as not to burn.

We also recommend compote of dried fruits. They contain an excellent set of vitamins and minerals lost during dehydration. You need to fill the dried fruits with boiling water in a ratio of 2: 5, bring to a boil and boil for half an hour on a small fire.

Kashi is better to cook on water without seasonings (without salt including). If the stomach remains satisfied, then the next day in porridge it is permissible to add a little sugar or honey.

What you can eat after poisoning?

Diet after poisoning includes vegetable soups, mashed potatoes (buckwheat or rice), boiled or baked vegetables. Meat is better not to eat, except chopped, in the form of cutlets for a couple. Steam steaks are also suitable. Some meatballs from poultry diet also do not exclude a diet after food poisoning. But dairy products are deleted; however, you can use baked cottage cheese (all casseroles and puddings). Excellent suhariki, but only home cooking. Fruits - you can, but not sour: apples, pears, quince. But even they should be boiled or baked. In the early days we drink exceptionally non-still mineral water.

Later in the diet after food poisoning, you can add a decoction of chamomile or dog rose (preferably with honey), green tea, fruit jelly. We also recommend decoction of broth, soups with rice, dry biscuit biscuits. Later, on the fourth or fifth day, you can eat a steam omelet or steam cutlets from veal.

What you can not eat after poisoning?

Poisoning is a powerful blow not only through the gastrointestinal tract, but also through the liver. Therefore, a diet after food poisoning excludes all those products that can at least minimize harm to these organs or add loads to them.

So, for a few days we cross out the menu with fatty, fried, salty and spicy. No alcohol, no sweets. With butter and milk, too, it is worthwhile to wait. You can not eat fresh bread and other pastries like pies or biscuits (at the same time, it is quite possible to eat homemade croutons). Categorically prohibited meat (especially fried) and lard, boiled and smoked sausage, meat and dairy soups, caviar and canned food. Also, the diet after food poisoning excludes oatmeal, millet and pearl barley. Eggs - just cooked for a couple. Fish, too. On sour or too sweet compotes, sweet sodas, and even more so alcohol - we do not even look. Vegetables and fruits must necessarily be boiled, and acidic fruits (citrus fruits, for example) are excluded altogether.
