That's actually a pretty serious condition when your electrolytes get too diluted to work properly. Apparently it's a big problem with marathon runners. An easy trick is to add a packet of table salt to water and give it to your casualty, not ideal but it does the trick in a pinch especially in emergency situations in the field.

What I do is get some Sport Drink mix + water (Gatorade or Powerade mix or w/e but really diluted), straight water, and Irn Bru.

As for food. Cornish Pasties are always awesome and you can hold it by the edge and not get the main part dirty from your hands being dirty (supposedly that's why they were invented according to legend/my Brit friends).
