Super Bowl® Finger Foods for the Kidney Diet

Many of us will likely be in the comfort of our living rooms watching the sports spectacle with a group of friends and family. And what better way to view the game than with some delicious, kidney-friendly diet finger food that everyone can nosh on.

Game day favorites have been provided by DaVita dietitian Kathy. The high-protein, low-phosphorus, low-potassium and low-sodium recipes will score with all football fans. If you have chronic kidney disease (CKD) and are not on dialysis but need to limit your protein intake, choose one or two meatballs or wings along with some lower protein appetizers from the section.

Satisfy your cravings throughout the day with any of these tasty recipes. For a beverage, you may want to consider kidney-friendly choices such as 7UP®, Sprite®, ginger ale or Barq’s® root beer. Coffee and tea are also good choices. Avoid beer, however, as it is high in phosphorus. Plus, remember to take your phosphorus binders when you eat.

Get a good place on the couch, wear your favorite team’s colors and enjoy the last football game of the season with friends, family and scrumptious food.
