    Hi, Alexander, may i suggest bananas, porridge with sugar or honey no milk

    Yoghurt light mince meat ala cottage pie. Chicken non greacy rice pots

    Even lighly fried rice. Most fish breadcrumbs are ok not batter

    Oddly enough i find oven chips straight from freezer to even fine too.

    No coffees no fizzy drinks no beer plenty of water apples are great

    Try good luck x

    You will need to do a food diary to see what foods trigger your symptoms because everyone with gastritis has different food sensitivities. You should eat blandly and avoid fatty, rich and spicy foods.

    Your best bet is to eat alkaline rich foods and avoid acid foods. 

    Alkaline foods are mainly most vegetables and fruits like apples, pears, avocado, bananas.

    Avoid acid foods like cheese, milk, red meat, pop, sugar, etc 

     You can find a list of these foods online.

    Ask your doctor to refer you to a dietician so that a daily food menu can be made for you. Usually insurance will cover.

    I too have gastrsits, milk for me is a huge help, especially when I am in pain, usually after eating something I know will upset me from experience, sometimes just not cooking onions enough, other times garlic in something, garlic for me is a nightmare, I do not tolerate at all, can cause me up to two weeks of pain post even the smallest amount.

    Half a cup of milk, topped up with boiling water, until warm, finger test, then sip slowly, repeat if necessary, usually causes me to burp a lot of wind, but at the same time seems to break up that pain even when antacids have refused to work.

    Foods to avoid, onions, garlic, cinnamon (except for breakfast), red meat (especially for dinner), can eat red meat for lunch, chocolate, coca cola, anything too fatty, do not eat pork for that reason.

    Hope this some help from my experience.

      Milk also helps my acid reflux because milk is alkaline and coats the stomach.   I find just drinking milk as it is, works just as well.
