Nausea can be prevented by:
- eating frequent small meals instead of three large meals 
- eating slowly
- consuming foods that are easy to digest 
- consuming food that is cold or at room temperature since smell of warm or hot food can cause nausea
- avoid triggers like unpleasant odor and sight
- resting after eating keeping the head elevated
- drinking fluids between meals instead of during meals
Vomiting (after feeling nauseated) can be prevented by:
- keeping hydrated by consuming small amounts of clear, sweet liquids such as Ginger ale, Gatorade and fruit juices that are not too acidic
- eating sweetened icy treats like popsicles 
- avoid activity and rest in sitting or propped-up lying position
- ginger is shown to be useful in prevention of nausea and vomiting 
- specific drugs can be used to prevent certain cases of nausea and vomiting, for example, transdermal patch of anticholinergic agent Scopolamine for prophylaxis of motion sickness.
