Hi. My 2 year old found and ate 3 day old pizza with ham, cheese, veg and salami on it. She ate a little under half a pizza slice. Is it likely she will get sick?

Thank you for the input.
Our body always try to resist infection.
Acid from stomach gives first prevention by killing the germs.
Infection does not always develop.
You have to wait and watch.
Give her more fluid.
If she develops any symptom like vomiting, diarrhea, fever etc. then you should take her to doctor for management.
I hope this information will be helpful.

How likely is she to get sick, though? 10%? 20?
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 2 months ago.

It is not possible to predict.

As she took a small amount, the chance of getting infection is quite less.
