Your daughter probably has a stomach virus. You can give her small amounts of toast wtih jelly. She should not be eating too much food at once. She can have a little chicken soup. She should stay away from dairy (including butter) and high sugar drinks as this can cause/irritate diarrhea. You can give her warm ginger ale that has been flattened only. Some doctor's recommend Mylicon children's formula for the stomach ache. If she isn't better in a 24 hour period or develops a fever, this is the time when you need to call her doctor.

Hope my answer has been helpful and your daughter feels better soon!
