Kidney-friendly snacks

In your spare time you will always take your children to go through any cookie or cracker aisle of your local grocery store and you’ll find a wide array of snacks.That is a wonderful thing to the normal persons. However, if you have PKD, you should limit or avoid certain ingredients that may be present in snack foods. Your doctor or dietitian may recommend that you limit your intake of phosphorus, potassium, sodium and calcium if your kidneys are no longer able to keep these minerals in balance. Keep in mind, unless told differently, by your doctor and/or dietitian, no food is off limits entirely. It all comes down to balance. By educating yourself and with the help of your dietitian, there are many kidney-friendly, healthy and tasty snacks available.

When you look for snacks at the store, staying on the perimeter of the store is always best practice. The produce section, where you can find fruits and veggies are usually a great place to start for good snack options. Your local farmer’s market is also a phenomenal place to try new, fresh snack ideas.

Below is a small list of fruits and vegetables that are low in potassium and great choices for a kidney diet. Not only are these foods good for kidney health, they also provide benefits for overall health. If you are on a potassium restriction, be sure to limit the number and size of servings of fruits and vegetables to those recommended by your dietitian.

Apples – High in fiber; good for the digestive system

Blueberries – High in antioxidants

Carrot sticks – High in beta-carotene

Cherries – Inflammation-reducers

Dried, sweetened cranberries – Helps to protect against heart disease

Grapes – Contains resveratrol to improve blood flow

Raspberries – Rich in ellagic acid; helps neutralize free radicals in the body to prevent cell damage
