Indigestion can lead to vomiting due to an accumulation of undigested food in the stomach. Your toddler may vomit undigested food, indicating that the food has not been digested. This might happen if the child eats too quickly, overeats, or eats foods that are excessively spicy or oily.

Toddlers have a habit of putting objects in their mouth and vomiting could occur as a result of ingesting harmful chemicals such as wild herbs, soaps, and detergents. These drugs irritate the lining of the stomach, causing the muscles to contract and the contents to be expelled. When a toddler ingests poisonous substances, he or she may vomit but show no other symptoms like fever or diarrhea.
