I have morning sickness all day and was wondering if there is a list of foods that will help decrease morning sickness. Kindest regards,
Because everyone is different, with different symptoms, conditions and food preferences, rather than recommending what to eat, we advise women on how to eat and drink.
No large meals. Limit food intake to small snacks (even if it's just a few bites) of any food, every hour or hour and a half, day and night. The point is to avoid having an empty stomach. Having a wide selection of all sorts of snacks makes this more possible. We also suggest drinking liquids half an hour before or after food intake (unless you drink a sip at a time on an ongoing basis).
