The Dietitian’s Guide to Ramadan is a quick 6 page guide to understanding the Muslim month of fasting. The guide walks you through:

  • What is Ramadan?
  • Why fast Ramadan?
  • Who fasts Ramadan?
  • Dietary changes in Ramadan
  • Your role as an RDN
  • Special considerations (for RDNs)

In Ramadan, observing Muslims will fast from food and drink (including oral medications) from sunup until sundown for an entire month. This means that as RDNs we may have to adjust our usual approach to MNT or wellness with our clients. This guide provides examples of circumstances where this may be necessary and how to best support clients observing the month.
