Good Nutrition Is Important Before, During And After Cancer Treatment
When you have or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, the last thing on your mind is what to have for dinner. For those undergoing cancer treatment, the prospect of a home-cooked meal can even seem daunting, especially when the illness and its treatment affect your appetite. But good nutrition is vital for those with cancer, as eating well before and after treatment can aid in feeling better and maintaining or boosting strength.
Cancer Support Meals
It’s especially important during cancer treatments for patients to make sure they are receiving the nutrients they need and avoid extreme changes to their diet. Eating well can be physically, mentally and emotionally beneficial as you fight this disease.
The cancer support menu options from Mom’s Meals:
- Contain at least 600 calories and 25 grams of protein per meal
- Have been developed with input from registered dietitians specializing in oncology and in accordance with guidelines from the American Institute for Cancer Research
