Does all tea stimulate pancreatic secretions? Or is it caffeinated tea? I think the option "TEA" can be more clarified. I did not choose nuts because some nuts are high in fat and should be eaten in moderation. I would be more specific with my dietary education and would tell the patient to eat foods with healthy fats in careful moderation and to completely avoid fried foods, processed foods/sugar, alcohol and caffeine.

Nuts

The kinds of food that are needed to be avoided by the client include: alcohol, coffee and tea, spicy foods, and heavy meals. These stimulate pancreatic secretions and produce attacks of pancreatitis. The client is informed of the benefits of eating small frequent meals that are low in protein, low in fat, and moderate to high in carbohydrates. Risk factors include alcoholism and cholelithiasis
