Why we say #FoodHeals

95%

children are more likely to stick with their treatment plan when nutrition is a part of it.*

81%

of our patients improved or maintained their nutritional status despite cancer therapy.

Nutrition aid is as crucial as counselling.

Supplements

Nutritional Supplements like PediaSure®, Pediagold & Threptin Biscuits and feeding tubes help children who are severely malnourished and may not have the time to only depend on a kitchen diet to improve their nutritional status.

In-meals

Foods like eggs, bananas, dry fruits, ghee, milkshakes, peanut brittle and lassi are provided as healthy supplements to children admitted in the hospital, seeking treatment like chemotherapy at the out-patient department, or visiting for follow-ups.

Hot meals

A freshly prepared, nutritious, and hygienic hot meal helps children get through long waiting hours during hospital visits. Filled with the right amount of carbs, protein, and fat, it keeps parents and kids away from unsafe street food.

Ration bundles

Our monthly ration bundles help feed a family of four while fulfilling 100% of the total caloric requirement for a child per day. Each bundle contains cereals, pulses, millets, nuts, oilseeds, ghee, oil, spices, condiments and basic personal hygiene products.

Caregiver support

We conduct parent support group meets to educate caregivers and parents about nutrition and hygiene. Through cook-outs and workshops at the hospital, we engage parents to make the right food choices for their child and the whole family.

Innovations fueling our work.

The FoodHeals® App was designed to aid our nutritionists in their work, while simultaneously increasing the overall accuracy, consistency and efficiency of our program.

Take a sneak peek into the Cuddles diary.

When it comes to cancer, we take things personally. It’s why we know each of our kids’ stories and ease their parent’s worries. Or why we attract the brightest nutritionists with the warmest hearts.

“After watching Cuddles on Kaun Banega Crorepati, I was touched and decided to support Cuddles immediately. I would encourage others to become monthly donors; a small amount every month can make a huge impact on others!”
