These cooking methods help keep as much potassium in the food as possible: </p> <ul> <li>Steaming: Steaming helps to keep nutrients within vegetables. </li> <li>Boiling: Vegetables are more nutritious if they are cooked with their skins on. Use just enough boiling water to cook evenly and completely without burning. </li> <li>Baking: Potato, sweet potato, squash and pumpkin are best when baked in the oven with their skins on. </li> <li>Fish and meat are best cooked using dry heat methods such as oven-baking, broiling, or roasting. </li> </ul> <h2>Snack suggestions</h2> <ul> <li>peanut butter on whole-wheat bread with a glass of milk </li> <li>grilled cheese on whole-wheat bread </li> <li>baked potato with bruschetta topping </li> <li>macaroni and cheese </li> <li>cheese with whole-wheat crackers </li> <li>vegetables with hummus </li> <li>bean soup, lentil soup, split pea soup, tomato soup </li> <li>whole-grain cereal with milk and banana slices </li> <li>yogurt with fruit </li> <li>bran muffin with fruit </li> <li>ice cream with fruit </li> </ul>https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/High_Mg_diet_fruit_and_veg_EN.jpgHigh-potassium dietFalse
