You can't always avoid enamel-eroding foods, so use these tips to minimize acid wear:
Avoid snacking in between meals to minimize acid attacks.
Don't swish or hold acidic beverages in your mouth. Sip them through a straw to reduce the amount of time the acids come into contact with your teeth.
Rinse your mouth with water or chew sugarless gum after meals to help neutralize acid attacks.
