  • Avoid big meals (e.g., switch from three large meals to six small meals per day)

  • Eat soft, well-cooked foods

  • Thoroughly chew food

  • Avoid carbonated, fizzy, or alcoholic beverages

  • Do some gentle physical activity after meals (e.g., walking)

  • Avoid lying down for 2 hours after a meal
