Ever heard of the brat diet? You probably have, but I will touch on it just in case you haven't. Bananas, rice, applesauce and toast, recently yogurt has been added to the diet for the benefits of the active cultures. Our doctor suggests this diet when our kids have a stomach bug but our littlest one is on it A LOT because he has such a problem with his belly. Bananas, yogurt and whole wheat bread have helped a bit.
He eats a banana and wholewheat peanut butter toast for breakfast, yogurt for a snack, and we limit milk and juice. We have to stay away from apple juice because it makes it worse. We also steer clear of sugary drinks/snacks. We also switched him from whole milk to 1 or 2 percent, and that has helped a bit as well.
I also have noticed that the smell is worse if is sick or has recently been sick. He is sick pretty frequently.
Have you asked his doctor about it? They might have some suggestions. They also might want to look into it a little deeper by running some tests.
