Tummy Troubles


Candy canes, marshmallow-topped sweet potatoes...'tis the season for overstuffing, and little tummies can suffer. Rich foods that are high in sugar and/or fat tend to empty from the stomach very slowly, resulting in a full, bloated feeling that can progress to pain. The best treatment: rest and abstinence. Within a few hours of going easy on activity and eating, your child should start feeling better as the food is digested.
