Do you suffer from chronic heartburn? It might be time to go for a thorough check-up as it could be a symptom of something more serious. In the meantime, however, it could help to avoid large, heavy meals.

Take action:


Try splitting up your three standard daily meals into five smaller ones, for example: breakfast – cereal with yoghurt and rooibos tea; mid-morning snack – sandwich with cottage cheese or a boiled egg and rooibos tea; lunch – 30g portion of lean meat or fish or egg with fruit and cooked vegetables; mid-afternoon snack – 2 biscuits or rusks with rooibos tea; supper – 50g lean meat or fish with rice and cooked vegetables and canned fruit with custard or yoghurt for dessert.
