Staying nourished throughout this difficult time is imperative to staying on course with the treatment. However, for many parents and caregivers, knowing what to shop for, what to eat, or how to identify the right kinds of foods that will best support the patient creates added challenges.

Foreword

“The role of nutrition in cancer cannot be over-emphasized. While good nutrition and healthy food choices should be an integral part of every individual’s daily life, maintaining appropriate nutrition during cancer treatment is crucial, especially for a child.
