Why Nutrition

For children with cancer,
nutrition can mean the difference
between life and death

Food makes medicine work

With the right nutrition and care, a child experiences:


Reduced side-effects and treatment complications.


Fewer breaks or delays in treatment.


Improved chances for survival and positive treatment outcomes.


Better immunity against infection.

Our Nutritionists are the backbone of our service

Trained at the best institutes of the country, they are carefully chosen for their knowledge, empathy, ability to work with children and survive in tough conditions. They are then trained in Pediatric Oncology by some of the best oncologists in the country at TATA Memorial Hospital.
