Helpful hints

  • If preferred use margarine instead of butter.
  • Any flavor jelly is acceptable.Serve with carrot sticks and apple slices.
  • Select low-sodium peanut butter to reduce sodium to 350 mg.
  • Peanut butter is a high potassium, high phosphorus ingredient but still works in a kidney diet as a substitute for meat. Portion control is important. 
  • Additional phosphate binder may be required if eaten as a snack---check with your renal dietitian.
