This takes me back and I fed my sons the exact same thing when they were ill:

dry toast, chicken noodle and chicken and rice soup, gingerale, jello, saltines and popsicles.

When I had a cough, I remember my mom mixing whiskey and sugar together to ease my sore throat.

When I didn't feel well as a child ( I had asthma really bad) my mother would stir up a little butter and sugar mix. And put it on a piece of bread. What a treat, because dad was gone in the army (it was world war II) and there wasn't anything to spare. So it meant a lot to me.

For me, pizza pops are the source of nausea. Not because I got sick after eating one, but because my daughter (who fell out of a tree and concussed herself) hurled one all over the inside of my van (replicating those commercials...) on the way to the ER. Ugh. Can't even smell one without gagging. She can't eat one either. Other daughter loves the stupid things so I break down and buy them once in a while. Blech.

Bud Light and Lil Smokies. I've never been sicker. Of course, I don't remember much of that night, but I do remember how they tasted both times....

when beeing ill:
the chicken noodle soup and for the cold: hot milk with honey, I hated that, or hot lemonjuice

as a small kid i really got ill from wafles, I couldn't stand even the smell of it for years without getting sick, but by now I'm already able to eat one or two

When I was in nursing school I went to class with the flu because we were only allowed to miss 3 days for the entire program (14 months). Someone made popcorn and it took me years before I could eat the stuff because of the smell. I still to this day can only eat a handful and thats it. Occasionally, the smell still gets me.

I've continued the practice on myself (by the glassfull), just in case.
