Nutrition and Cancer

Good nutrition can help people diagnosed with cancer by giving you more energy, boosting your mood, help manage your body's response to treatment and improve your immune system helping to fight infections.

 

We follow the recommendations from the Australian Dietary Guidelines. which includes the advice to eat from the 5 food groups every day. (see the diagram)

 

Why not use your extra time at home to check out the Healthy Lunchbox website (it's not just for school kids!) It's got some great easy recipes that are delicious and nutritious! 

 

For further advice around Nutrition, refer to the Nutrition and Cancer publication or call 131120

I've been using One Bite at a Time by Rebecca Katz since my Colon Cancer experience in 2007.
