Low FODMAP Resources for You and Your Clients

Every so often at Healthy Bytes, we provide you with various resources that could be of use to you during your nutrition counseling sessions. To date, we’ve shared sports nutrition, food allergies and intolerances, and eating disorders and body image issues resources, to name a few. Today we’re sharing information from our RDN friends on following a low FODMAP lifestyle, which can help individuals who are sensitive to Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols in their diets.

Low FODMAP Websites

Low FODMAP Phone Apps

  • The Monash FODMAP app comes highly recommended by many, including dietitians Robyn Kievit and Elana Natker. Created by Monash University, the FODMAP Diet app provides “…easy access to recommendations about the foods you should eat – and those you should avoid – at every meal.” Elana points out that Monash researchers developed and coined the low FODMAP approach and they continue to invest in and conduct research on the subject. She says that when she discusses the app with RDNs familiar with low FODMAP, RDNs refer to the app as “…indispensable!” Monash University also offers an RDN training program on the topic of low FODMAPs for 25 CEUs.

  • Dietitian Leah Swanson suggests the free Cara app, a tool for tracking both food and symptoms, as an easy way to find out “what’s good for your tummy,” according to the app’s website. Users can also use the app to track digestion, mood, mediations, supplements, sleep and more.

Low FODMAP Handouts and Meal Plans

  • Dietitian Ashley Koff created her “A Better Menu: Low FODMAP” meal plan for your clients who request nutritious suggestions for low FODMAP breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks throughout the week. Ashley’s menu is for individuals who have been told to try a low FODMAP diet or are curious as to whether it will help improve digestive symptoms and issues.

  • Dietitian Mandy Enright shares that Living Plate offers low FODMAP meal plans as well, which are very helpful for those who need help with planning out and learning how to prepare low FODMAP meals.
