Foods that Prevent/Relieve Nausea


Apples: Fiber helps clear out nausea-inducing chemicals in your system, but too much at one time can make you feel even worse. Throughout the day, snack on such fiber-rich foods, such as apples, and crunchy raw vegetables.

Simple Carbohydrates: Simple carbs like crackers, potato chips and pretzels can help absorb stomach acid and settle a queasy stomach.

Ginger: Options: ginger tea, ginger ale, ginger snap cookies, ginger candy, pickled or sugared ginger, or a piece of raw ginger in a cup of hot water.

Water: Staying hydrated will help avoid headaches that often accompany nausea.

Nuts and nut butters: A lack of protein can make nausea worse, so nuts are a great quick and easily digestible source of protein.

Chicken broth and sports drinks: Help replenish electrolytes and sodium.

Bananas: Restores potassium, which can often become depleted from vomiting.

Sprig of Mint: Chewing on fresh mint or drinking a glass of mint tea can help settle your stomach.

Carbonated Drinks (without artificial sweeteners)

Hard Candies

Herbal Teas (red raspberry, lemon, spearmint, peppermint, peach, or chamomile)
