The 10 Best Foods for Kidney Health

In the event that your child has been diagnosed with kidney disease, it is only normal for you to want to do everything in your power to ensure that he or she remains healthy. Why don't you begin with the food that you provide with dinner? 

Berries don't have a lot of potassium like other foods do. They also have a lot of good for your child's body nutrients and antioxidants. You can use blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries.

Another fruit that is low in potassium is the apple. Plus, they're good for you because when you eat them with the peel on, they're high in fiber and naturally reduce inflammation.

Lots of veggies have a lot of potassium, just like many fruits. Bell peppers, on the other hand, are not, and they are full of vitamins C and A, which help the nervous system.

Your child may enjoy tropical fruits like bananas and oranges, which are high in potassium. Pineapple is a tropical staple with low potassium but high fiber, manganese, and vitamin C.

Kids with kidney disease may need to limit their protein intake, but they still need adequate protein sources. Fish is one. Fatty fish like salmon include omega-3 fatty acids, which aid the brain and heart and reduce inflammation.

Phosphorus-rich dairy products like ice cream are frequently off limits for kids with kidney impairment. Your child may want something chilly and sweet like sorbet, which has less phosphorus and potassium.

Every once in a while, everyone, even kids, needs something crunchy to snack on. Serve herbs and spices on top of plain popcorn instead of salty snacks that could be bad for your kidneys.
