In another narration Aishah (RA) has said: “My mother was trying to fatten me up when she wanted to send me to the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) (when she got married), but nothing worked until I ate cucumbers with dates; then I grew plump like the best kind of plump.” [Sunan Ibn Majah, Book 29, Hadith 3324]
