CKD-Friendly Halloween Treats

With Halloween around the corner, go ahead and enjoy an occasional treat but remember not all candy is created equal!

Here are some candies with a lower amount of potassium, sodium, and phosphorus to keep on hand for Trick or Treaters that are also a better choice for a kidney-friendly treat.

Say “yes please” to:

  • Hard candies — like Sweet Tarts®, Jolly Ranchers® and Runts®
  • Lollipops
  • Jelly beans
  • Starburst®
  • Skittles®
  • Laffy Taffy®
  • Sour Patch® Kids®
  • AirHeads®

Say “no thanks!” to:

  • Chocolate candy bars
  • Candy bars that contain nuts
  • Candy that contains coconut or dried fruits
  • Candy that contains caramel
  • Talk to your renal dietitian for other good choices.

And remember, share leftover candy with friends and families. Getting extra candy out of the house helps avoid temptation to overindulge.

Happy Halloween!
