It is possible that your twins are having an allergic reaction to the preservatives in the dried fruit or the cold drinks or they may have picked up an infection from either of these products. Give them frequent sips of Rehidrat solution and continue with the Probiflora. If they are still vomiting they should be seen at an after hours emergency paediatric clinic.
