Gastroesophageal reflux disease can be treated in part in children by the avoidance of certain foods, such as caffeinated sodas, chocolate, acidic foods, peppermint and almost any fried, fatty or spicy foods. Other tips for aiding children dealing with GERD include eating smaller, more frequent meals, and avoiding eating at all 2 to 3 hours before bedtime. -- National Digestive Disease Information Clearinghouse
