In brief: Yes

Eating smaller, more frequent meals can improve your hiatal hernia symptoms.
Keep a food diary to make sure you don't overeat. Also try to eat only at meals, and avoid empty calories in snacks. Lastly, try to avoid caffeine and alcohol, which can significantly worsen reflux symptoms.
