Health Tip:

Tummy aching?

If you suspect food intoxication (popularly called food poisoning), call your doctor if it is a diarrheal illness that doesn’t get better in three days or is bloody or is accompanied by a fever of more than 101.5 degrees Fahrenheit. If a child is lethargic and not making urine, it could be a sign of dehydration. Children with diarrhea should drink a pediatric electrolyte solution found at the drug store.

This nutrition tip is from Dr. Kathryn Kolasa, registered dietitian and professor of family medicine at the Brody School of Medicine.
