If you thought that indulging in a full range of festive favourites and tempting treats at Christmas time is off the menu for people living with chronic kidney disease (CKD), we have some great news for you!
Each of the recipes on our Festive Favourites menu has been carefully analysed by kidney dietitians and approved by the British Dietetic Association Renal Nutrition Group (RNG) as being safe for people living with CKD to eat. And if you think that must mean that we have compromised on taste – think again! Our Kidney Kitchen Festive Favourites menu is bursting with flavour.
We know that everyone living with CKD will have slightly different diet requirements and so we recommend that you speak to your kidney dietitian for more personalised advice.
Each of our Festive Favourites comes with detailed and easy-to-understand ‘Food facts’ where you can identify:
- low potassium recipes
- advice on when to take any phosphate binders you have been prescribed
- the per-portion carbohydrate content to help you calculate your insulin dose if you are also living with diabetes (and have been trained in insulin adjustment)
- how to modify each recipe if you follow a vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free diet.
