Guidelines:

  • Eat six to eight small meals a day, instead of three large meals.
  • Try bland, soft, and easy to digest foods.
  • Keep up with your fluid intake. Sip clear liquids such as ginger ale, coconut water, or lime water frequently to prevent dehydration.
  • Seek foods that appeal to the sense of smell.
