How to settle an upset tummy

Cuddle a hot-water bottle

The warmth on your tummy from a hot-water bottle may help distract you from cramps, and the heat will help your tummy muscles relax.

Get pickled

Fermented foods such as sauerkraut, pickled vegetables in brine and yogurt help feed the friendly bacteria in your gut.

Keep things moving

Fibre-rich foods such as avocados, nuts, seeds, broccoli and cauliflower help relieve digestive discomfort by bulking up stools to keep waste moving through your intestines.
