Optimizing Nutrition for Children with Cancer

Presentation from OPACC's 2017 Annual General Meeting. Presented by Rivanna Stuhler, RD.

Paeds & Parents Nourish


Nutrition is often a major concern both during, and following, cancer

treatment. Most parents have concerns about what their children are eating

and want them to have all the right nutritional components in their diet.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, appetites wane or increase, tastes

change due to treatment or symptoms, weight increases or decreases. It

becomes increasingly challenging to help your children eat well. Wellspring

has designed a special Nourish program aimed at helping you and your

children with healthy eating, while still having fun in the kitchen. To find your local Wellspring centre, click the button.
