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.
