What is it?
Motion sickness is a disturbance of your sense of balance, caused by the movement of travelling in a car, plane or boat. Children are most likely to suffer from it, with the most common symptoms being nausea, vomiting, dizziness, sweating, looking pale and feeling cold and clammy.What to do
If your child has motion sickness, give him a seat next to the window, or where he can see out of the front of the bus. Avoid spicy or greasy foods and fizzy drinks 24 hours before you leave and while you’re travelling. Carry plain snacks like rice cakes or bananas to settle your child’s stomach. If the problem is bad or you are going on a long journey, ask the pharmacist about medication that can reduce the symptoms of travel sickness.
