If you’ve recently struggled with stomach problems causing vomiting or diarrhoea, your GP might instruct you to stick to light – and sometimes bland – foods that won’t irritate your stomach while you recover from your illness.

A great place to start when trying to determine the foods you should stick to is the BRAT diet, consisting of bananas, rice, apple sauce or apple puree and toast.

The idea behind BRAT is that these foods are easy to digest and low in fibre.
