    You want to avoid foods that can cause irritation such as excess caffeine, spices, alcohol, and cola-based beverages. You want to consume smaller meals and reduce the amount of fat in your diet and avoid high fatty foods. Try not to consume fluids with your meals or try not to drink large volumes with meals. If you suspect that certain foods may aggravate your reflux a food and symptom diary may be helpful to determine the culprit food. An Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) can help you with this and ensure your diet is nutritionally adequate.

    In general a normal healthy diet making sure you achieve a good balance through variety of different foods such as fruit and veg, low fat dairy and lean meals, and whole-grain breads, cereals, pasta and rice is encouraged.
