Certain foods are thought to help control the symptoms of acid reflux. These include: 

  • Leafy green vegetables, cucumber, asparagus, and broccoli 
  • Non-acidic fruits, such as bananas, apples, pears, and melons 
  • Lean meats and seafood  
  • Whole-grain cereals, bread, and rice 

You should also swap fizzy drinks and acidic fruit juice for water. Avoid processed, fatty foods, including dairy, which can put extra pressure on your gut.
