Visual Aids for Healthy Living
Visual Aids Series for Healthy Kidney Diet
#1: How kidneys work?
Providing nutritional education is essential for healthy eating and living in people living with kidney disease. In this series, we are releasing 6 sets of simplified, easy-to-use visual aids for healthy kidney diet, developed by an experienced renal dietitian, Mrs. Cecile Verseput, RD, from South Africa.
The visual aids are based on the 5-step concept – Step 1: How kidneys work, Step 2: What foods are eaten daily, Step 3: What to eat, Step 4: What not to eat & Step 5: How much to eat.
Step 1: How kidneys work?
The first set is to explain how kidneys work and what goes wrong in chronic kidney disease.
Step 2: What foods are eaten daily?
The second set is to compare foods eaten daily and to address major diet problems using alternatives as provided by 6 tips.
