I'm a diabetic/CKD-3 patient and wondering if these meals are safe for family & young grandchildren. I-m the only one that is a diabetic.Dietitian comment: Yes, because our recipes are low in sodium they are a healthy choice for most people. Children do not need to restrict potassium or phosphorus[INVALID]they can have dairy and higher potassium fruits and vegetables.
