Healthy Halloween Tips for Kidney Diets
Food Day, described as ” a nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food” was observed for the second year across America on October 24th. This celebration kickoff is an opportunity to focus on healthy eating, beginning with this week’s Halloween festivities. One of the resources provided on the Food Day website is a handout packed full of ideas for healthy Halloween treats. I really love the fun foods included on this year’s handout. To assist with your kidney diet I have analyzed 3 of the fun foods that I consider kidney-friendly.
