Your mother should eat whatever she feels comfortable consuming. Sometimes lots of greasy foods will cause nausea so they should be limited IF they do so. Otherwise, she can eat whatever she wants. There are no herbal remedies that will cure this and often, they taste terrible.
Keep in mind that poor appetite with weight loss is very common and pushing food in the terminally ill is of no value.
Some folks use the canned enteral supplements (i.e., Ensure), although things like homemade milkshakes are easier and typically have more nutrition than these products.
It is time for the family to enjoy what sounds like the limited amount of time you have with your mother.
