3 yr old gal vomiting

Hi my 3 year old son had a fever all night, Even after I gave him Enpaped 250mg. He started vomiting this morning, very bright yellow. Yesterday he went to the movies, being sugar sensitive, he ate more then enough Astros. After the movie he played in the hot sun for a while. I don''t know what could have made him sick. What I do need to know is what I can give him to eat and drink today. So he could feel better???
Thank you

As your son has a fever his vomiting is not due to eating too many sweets, but he must have an infection.The most likley cause in a boy of this age is tonsillitis. This is provided that he does not show any signs of having a gastro infection such as having diarrhoea.He needs lots of fluids to to drink today.Water would be best, but really anything that he is prepared to drink.Use another Empaped if he still has a fever. If he vomits again or if he still has a fever tomorrow he should be seen by his doctor.
