Benefits of the BRAT Diet

The BRAT diet consists of easily digested foods that may help soothe the GI system while providing bulk to make stools firmer. It's low fiber, starchy and bland, so it won't further irritate the stomach. Furthermore, it can help a person ease back into eating normally.

While the body moves from liquids to solid food after a bout of gastrointestinal symptoms, the BRAT diet may help the GI tract rest and eventually accommodate normal foods.3’Bland diet.’ MedlinePlus
