Kidney Life promotes eating right for National Nutrition Month

Mar 08, 2016

Kidney-Life-National-Nutrition-Month_01_story.jpgToo often we don't enjoy the great flavors and social experiences of eating food.  This month is National Nutrition Month, when the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics reminds everyone that they can enjoy eating healthy foods.  This year's theme, "Savor the Flavor of Eating Right," emphasizes the positive aspects of nutrition and encourages tasty, healthy food choices for dialysis patients who often hear what foods they can't eat.

Kidney Life Dietitian Bonnie Birnbaum set up an interactive lobby display for patients to talk about food traditions, share food appreciations, and play a nutritional word game.  Birnbaum also wants patients to know more about what they can eat rather than what they can't eat.

National-Nutrition-Month_story.jpg"Patients frequently hear the lists of high phosphorus, potassium, and sodium foods to avoid, which often includes their favorites. We, as dietitians, provide recipes, discuss meal planning, and recommend specific products to turn the conversation into a useful plan for what to make for dinner and not just a list of what's bad for them," said Birnbaum.

Patients will pass along their food tradition stories to Birnbaum and win prizes, such as kitchen utensils, for completing the nutritional word game.  The National Nutrition Month display at Kidney Life will be up through the end of March.
