Things that may help with your esophagitis:
Avoid spicy foods such as those with pepper, chili powder, curry, and nutmeg.
Avoid hard foods such as nuts, crackers, and raw vegetables.
Avoid acidic foods and beverages such as tomatoes, oranges, grapefruits, and their juices. Instead, try imitation fruit drinks with vitamin C.
Add more soft foods such as applesauce, cooked cereals, mashed potatoes, custards, puddings, and high protein shakes to your diet.
Take small bites and chew food thoroughly.
If swallowing becomes increasingly difficult, try tilting your head upward so the food flows to the back of the throat before swallowing.
Drink liquids through a straw to make swallowing easier.
Avoid alcohol and tobacco.
