The Big Give - Can Do Diet

Changing the mindset of renal patients

Oct 31 2018

Oct 31 2019

Changing the mindset of renal patients to focus on what you can eat not what you can't eat. We aim to educate them on budgets and ingredients enabling them to have a healthier lifestyle and feel empowered.

Need

Negative attitude towards diet within the renal community. We are trying to identify opportunities rather than restrictions for the patients.

Solution

By educating the patients on opportunities when it comes to their daily diet. The project will cover diet, budget and an overall healthy lifestyle.

Aim

Identify opportunities rather than restrictions for renal patients

Activities

  • Concentrate on 3 main areas - diet - budget - overall healthy lifestyle
  • Link with patients and health care professionals

Impact
