There are a number of ways in which eating may affect the lungs. Sometimes there is reflux of gastric contents into the food pipe and some of it can trickle into the lungs (aspiration). This may occur with a sliding hernia (hiatus hernia). Another way in which this could occur is an allergic type of reaction causing bronchospasm and wheezing. However, this is rare with food allergens and more common with aero allergens, i.e. allergens that are breathed in like pollens and grasses. If it continues you should see your doctor to try and address some of these possibilities.
