Health Tip: What to Eat During Morning Sickness

(HealthDay News) -- When you're pregnant and battling morning sickness, the last thing you may feel like doing is swallowing food. But it's important that you and your baby continue eating.

The American Pregnancy Association says these foods may help tame morning sickness:

  • Foods that can be eaten cold, including cold sandwiches, raw vegetables and fruits such as lemon or ginger, or cold salad. Don't use dressings, seasonings or condiments.
  • Foods that aren't too spicy or flavorful, such as plain soups and broths, or a plain baked potato.
  • Crackers or pretzels.
  • Jello or popsicles.
  • Peppermint tea.
