My 6 year old daughter has been complaining of stomach pains after eating certain foods for about 12 months or so (not long after we moved to the USA from Australia). The only common thread in the offending foods seems to be processed sugar (it started with ice-cream, which she won't eat anymore due to the pain, but now it's candy or anything else that is high in processed sugar). Tonight she had two Swedish Fish candies and, almost immediately, the stomach pain started. I will often make her a banana smoothie for breakfast (milk, banana and honey) which she's fine with and she loves yoghurt so I've ruled out dairy. It just seems to be junkie food that her body can't process. She says she also feels nauseus and has vomitted a couple of times (after visiting Grandma's house where she gets loaded up with candy, chocolate milk etc etc). If she's only had a small amount of sugar and has the pain she will ask to take a bowl to bed with her, although she rarely ends up vomitting in those situations. She says the pain is on the inside, right around her belly button, and above it, but she holds her shirt up because she says it's also tender on the outside. She's got a very small frame and doesn't eat all that much. Her eating isn't terrible - I can usually get her to eat some vegetables each day, plus fruit etc (all of which is fine for her) so I don't think it's constipation. I think her bowel movements are normal (she's very private about that) but I have noticed on ocassions that she has very smelly gas (as in more so than normal...). Any ideas?
