What is a good healthy diet for someone with crohn's?

Healthy eating. Many diets have been tested for crohn's, but there is no evidence to support any particular diet. However, some with crohn's develop intestinal strictures or narrowing. If you do, a low roughage diet is important because undigested food like corn kernels or celery strings can get trapped in a stricture and cause pain or a blockage. Some also malabsorb specific nutrients so check with your doctor.
