The Host Of Food Network's "BIG DADDY'S HOUSE", Aaron McCargo, Jr, Is Talking To Us About How Having Chronic Kidney Disease Doesn't Mean You Can't Eat Great Tasting Food

26 MILLION Americans (and millions more at risk) have chronic kidney disease (CKD), which can progress to complete kidney failure. Once diagnosed with kidney failure, people must follow a very restricted diet. Strict diets CAN be bold and flavorful and NOT boring! Just ask “BIG DADDY.”

Food Network Star Aaron McCargo, Jr., host of Food Network’s “Big Daddy’s House,” is cooking up some inspiring eats in a segment that hits home to many Americans who are living with kidney failure, or have a loved one with this illness. Aaron McCargo, Jr. Is a celebrated chef who hosts one of the Food Network's most popular cooking shows, Big Daddy’s House, where he shares his passion for big, bold flavors and fun, family cooking. Aaron whips up mouth-watering recipes inspired by many years of culinary experience and his fun-loving family while bringing a down-to-earth vibe and warm smile to the kitchen. Whether cooking with his children, relatives, friends, or even by himself, big food and big fun reign supreme.

In 2011, Aaron partnered with Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA) to inspire people living with chronic kidney disease to live a better life on dialysis by maintaining a healthy diet. Throughout 2012, he will be developing tasty, satisfying and healthy recipes designed especially for people on dialysis. He also looks forward to visiting FMCNA clinics to help lead education sessions that will show patients how to get creative in the kitchen and cook nutritious, delicious meals. In 2003, Aaron opened his own restaurant in Camden, N.J., called McCargo’s Restaurant. In 2008, Aaron won season four of The Next Food Network Star, beating out thousands of culinary hopefuls to win his own show. Big Daddy’s House premiered in 2008, and since that time Aaron has been featured on numerous national news programs including The Today Show, Regis and Kelly, Nate Berkus, Dr. Oz, The Chew and Rachael Ray.

Born and raised in Camden, N.J., Aaron comes from a large family (he has five brothers and sisters) whose constant support has helped him achieve his goals. He regularly speaks to youth at schools and community events illustrating that they too can succeed despite the odds. He also donates his time and energy to nonprofit groups including Share Our Strength and the Great American Dine Out to help end childhood hunger.
