           With a vision to ‘create a patient education
        website covering all aspects of the renal diet for
        people with CKD and their carers’ and ultimate aims
        of ‘helping our kidney patients and their carers to
        understand the kidney diet better, to help them to
        explore new avenues with regard to cooking on a
        kidney diet and to improve the food choices and
        variety available to them’ achieving this was always
        going to be a challenge. However, with a shared
        vision, a very clear project scope and content
        determined by the end user, the final outcome was
        a website consisting of the following sections:
         41 nutritionally analysed recipes, suitable for patients with
         CKD, with both the total analysis per portion and the number
         of ‘Renal allowances’ per portion (i.e. protein exchanges,
         dairy, fruit, vegetables and potatoes) reported and allergens
         identified where relevant. The recipes are printable and       CHICKEN BURGERS
         searchable within the recipe finder function.
