Paediatric Renal Nutrition Group (PRiNG)

About us

PRiNG is a sub-group of the Paediatric Specialist Group of the British Dietetic Association. It consists of experienced paediatric dietitians with expertise in a range of childhood diseases affecting the kidneys including children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 2-5 and those on dialysis, acute kidney injury, nephrotic syndrome, tubular disorders and other rare kidney disorders. Although the majority of the group is made up of dietitians working in the 13 paediatric renal units across the UK, dietitians who have an interest in kidney disease are welcome to join.
