The BRAT Diet (good to keep in mind for sick children): The BRAT diet consists of foods that are exceptionally plain and low in fiber. Low-fiber foods were recommended as it was thought that foods high in fiber cause gas and possibly worsen gastrointestinal upset.

An acronym, BRAT is a mnemonic for:bananas, rice, apple sauce and toast, the staples of the diet. Extensions to the BRAT diet include BRATT (with tea), BRATTY (with tea and yogurt), and BRATCH (with chicken, often boiled). Sometimes the "T" represents tapioca.
