10 Foods that can help calm an upset stomach 

White Rice

Refined grains like white rice are lower in fiber and easy on the digestive tract, helping it heal faster when your stomach is upset


Since cooked apples and skins are removed, applesauce, another BRAT diet item, is easier to digest.


Toast is another BRAT diet meal that may help an upset stomach.

Creamy Peanut Butter

Try creamy peanut butter on toast for a bland topping. The potassium is also beneficial. Since peanut butter has more fiber, limit it to a tablespoon.


Toast and crackers are salty carbs that may relax your stomach. Refined white flour or other low-fiber crackers are bland and easy to digest, making them stomach-ache remedies.


Ginger tea and concentrated ginger pills can help pregnant nausea. Add fresh, minced ginger to tea and water, or make calming ice cubes with chopped ginger.


When sick, humans seek broth for a reason. Chicken stock and bone broth contain salt, potassium, and calcium. 

Coconut Water

Coconut water may help you regain fluids, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and salt after vomiting or diarrhea.


Teas may also relax your stomach. The drink fits bland, clear diets. The clear diet includes room-temperature clear liquids and snacks for unsettled stomachs.


Potatoes also help upset stomachs. The bland diet includes potatoes and bananas. Their potassium content is high. A 92g white potato has 374mg of potassium.
