Both kale and arugula are low in oxalates while spinach and chard are high.But there are many other sources of oxalates in foods-see https://kidneystones.uchicago.edu/how-to-eat-a-low-oxalate-diet/ and https://wellnessmama.com/269103/oxalates/ There are many other ways to reduce risk, esp. better hydration and magnesium citrate: https://www.lifeextension.com/protocols/kidney-urinary/kidney-stones
