Why are fruits important?
In the Renal FOOD SPIRAL®, FRUITS are divided into the three colors: green for “GO”, yellow for “CAUTION”, and red for “STOP”. The foods in the green and yellow sections are the healthiest. The foods in the red section have less nutritional value
Fruits in the GO section are assigned a Food Factor of 1 . Fruits in the CAUTION section are assigned a Food Factor of 2 . Fruits in the STOP section are assigned a Food Factor of 3 . Find out from your doctor or dietitian how many Food Factors you are allowed in a day.
By choosing more foods in the GO and CAUTION sections, you will be able to eat more foods than if you chose foods in the STOP section. You will also be making healthier choices.
Try to eat at least 3 servings of fruit a day. Fruits can help you decrease your intake of sugary snacks, colas, fatty, and salty foods.
Serving sizes matter.
