Christmas Food and Drink

Dec 7, 2016

 All ostomates are different and if you've had your stoma for a while you will probably know what foods you can and can't eat. 

Over the festive season we all tend to over indulge and ostomates, just like everyone else, need keep an eye on this. 

It's worth being careful with the following items as they may effect your output. 

  • Mince pies
  • Nuts
  • Christmas pudding
  • Dates
  • Christmas cake
  • Tangerines and fruit salad
  • Stuffing
  • Red Wine
  • Sprouts
  • Fizzy drinks
  • Parsnips
  • Grapes 

Further information on food can be found in our in our Healthy Eating Booklet
