Snack:

  • 3/4 cup ready-to-eat cereal with 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup milk

If you are suffering from morning sickness, try eating low-fat, but high carbohydrate nutrient-dense foods. Such food items are digested quickly, causing less time in the stomach to feel uneasy. Eat less, but more frequently.

Make sure to stay hydrated. Have juice, water, soy milk if you don’t prefer to eat solid food. If you feel uncomfortable to eat/drink the appropriate amount of fluids/food for 1 day or more, immediately get in touch with your healthcare provider.
