4-Year-Old Gifts Kate Middleton With This Morning Sickness Remedy
For the third time, Kate Middleton is dealing with hyperemesis gravidarum during pregnancy. This super severe type of morning sickness will cause moms to do anything to feel better—maybe even eat some unsolicited fruit from a preschooler.
During a visit to the British Sub-Aqua Club in Merseyside, England, Prince William was gifted with an avocado from 4-year-old Archie Weatherall. Archie’s mother is suffering from pregnancy nausea too, and he thinks this fruit can help the Duchess.
“[Prince William] said he’s never been given an avocado before,” Christina Lahive, the head teacher at Archie’s school, tells the Express. “He said he’d take it to her and see what happens—and said good luck for Archie’s mummy.”
Will it help? While the no. 1 tip for the one percent of women suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum is to drink water (dehydration from vomiting can land moms-to-be in the hospital for an IV), an avocado might be worth a shot. It’s a nutrient-dense and easy-to-digest fat; more complex fatty comfort foods like french fries and ice cream are difficult to digest and will make you feel worse.
Still, avocado is a fairly untraditional morning sickness remedy. Ginger is still your best friend for this pregnancy symptom.
