Tried & True Tuesday ~ Stomach Bug Kit

Sorry for the late post, I've been busy playing doctor, nurse and carpet cleaner. These are my Tried & True go-tos for stomach bugs.  Here's what's on the menu for my youngest today...

I swear there is magic in the golden nugget of Mrs. Grass' Noodle Soup that calms an upset stomach!  Too bad there is egg in the noodles, so my little one can't eat this soup.  She has to stick with chicken broth.  

I would have Vernor's Ginger Ale in the house, but she doesn't care for it, so she's getting what I grew up on, a glass of flat coke to sip on once her tummy settles down.

This morning, I was SO thankful to have these in our house!  I always try to have a full can of Spot Shot at all times!  Spot Shot is magical, just like those golden nuggets!  I have yet to have a stain on my carpet that Spot Shot couldn't get out.  

I read on one of my favorite blogs that 100% Pure Grape Juice may prevent the spread of a stomach bug.  I'm willing to give it try - it can't hurt!  Off to drink a glass or two, or the entire bottle!  

Head over to i should be mopping the floor to read more on this tip.

NOT a GOOD idea to drink this if you already have a stomach bug.  I love Spot Shot, but I think Purple Grape Juice would test its limits!

Off to pour a glass...or drink straight from the bottle!  Hopefully next week I'll something more appetizing to share.

Thanks for stopping by!

So sorry you guys are having to deal with a nasty bug! Hope everyone feels better soon. We were a Ginger Ale or 7up family growing up. I've never even seen that chicken noodle soup in the store...will look harder next time I'm there so I can try it. Thank Goodness for Spot Shot!

Aw sorry I missed this post Mary. We grew up on flat coke and I swear by it with my kids and if they are throwing up, it also makes it a bit easier for them coming back up (yikes TMI. So glad all okay now - big hugs xxxx
