A fighting chance starts with a full stomach.

40% of children with cancer are malnourished at the time of their diagnosis. This makes the fight for survival all the harder.

A fighting chance starts with a full stomach.

40% of children with cancer are malnourished at the time of their diagnosis. This makes the fight for survival all the harder.

The good news? According to research, with the right nutrition during treatment, 7 out of 10 children in India can survive cancer.

Every child is unique, so are their treatment plans.

The FoodHeals® Program is customised to every child’s medical condition. We do this to provide the right nutrition needed to complete treatment successfully. Here’s how:

Assess
We first assess and screen the nutritional status of every child seeking cancer treatment in our partner hospitals.
STEP 1
Evaluate
We evaluate side-effects that may negatively impact the child’s nutritional status.
STEP 2
Prescribe
We finalise the right nutrition therapy and prescribe a customised diet plan.
STEP 3
Provide
We aid and support the child and family by providing nutritional supplements, hot meals, in-meals, eggs, bananas and monthly ration baskets for a family of four.
STEP 4
Monitor
We continuously monitor the child’s nutritional status and reassess plans if required.
STEP 5
Support
We also support patient families with the knowledge to make healthier food choices by organising parent support group meetings, videos and educational talks.
