Both versions of the Food Pyramid include the following seven food groups on the front side with blanks for Dietitians to fill in the patient's specific daily serving goal for each group:


High Protein Foods


Grains & Cereals, Breads, Crackers & Snacks




Fruits & Fruit Juices


Dairy Products


Non-dairy Milk Substitutes



On the back side of the Food Pyramid, "Foods to Limit or Avoid" are grouped in three categories:


High Sodium


High Potassium


High Phosphorus

Because no two patients' nutrition needs are exactly the same (based on weight, current blood analysis, other health complications, etc.) the Food Pyramid is designed with blanks to be customized for each individual patient's nutrition goals, and is therefore meant for distribution by healthcare professionals.

Suggested uses for the "Food Pyramid for Healthy Eating with Kidney Disease" include:

New Patient Diet Introduction  Family Member Diet Review
