The Importance of Eating Well with Cancer

Getting your child to eat the right foods for a well balanced nutrition is extremely difficult. When you have a child on chemo who doesn’t have a big appetite, makes it even more difficult. 
As a non-profit run by a cancer survivor we know how this can be a looming task, but whole heartedly believe that making “eating well” will greatly benefit your child through their treatment.
According to the American Cancer Society, “Eating well during cancer treatment might help your child”:
  • Better tolerate treatment and treatment side effects
  • Stay closer to the treatment plan schedule
  • Heal and recover faster
  • Have less risk of infection during treatment
  • Have better strength and energy
