The Cuddles Foundation tackles childhood cancer in India by bridging the gap between medical treatment and nutrition. The NGO partners with hospitals to provide specialized nutritionists and food aid, streamlining collaboration and making expert care more accessible, ultimately aiming to empower medical professionals across India to fight childhood cancer more effectively.

Major Interventions:

FoodHeals Program: This program takes a comprehensive approach to supporting children fighting cancer in India. It starts by meticulously assessing each child's nutritional status to understand their specific needs. Potential side effects from treatment that could impede their ability to absorb nutrients are evaluated. Accordingly, a personalized diet plan is created, providing essential resources such as nutritional supplements, hot meals, in-between meal options like eggs and bananas, and monthly food rations for the whole family. Educational support is also offered through parent group meetings, informative videos, and talks, empowering families to make informed and healthy choices throughout their child's treatment journey.

Monitoring Progress and Impact: The program closely monitors each child's nutritional status using metrics like MUAC (mid-upper arm circumference) and BMI. This allows them to track progress and adjust plans as needed. Cuddles also tracks the number of patients engaged, counseling sessions provided, and the types of cancer most prevalent among participating children.

Data-Driven Approach: The program empowers families with knowledge through educational talks, videos, and support groups, enabling them to make informed choices throughout the treatment journey. It measures its impact by tracking the average number of daily calories provided, the cost savings these resources represent for families, and the quantities of different nutritional aids distributed. This data allows them to continuously improve the program's effectiveness.

Research and Development: As part of their knowledge-building initiative, assistance for research on paediatric oncology and nutrition is provided to doctors. Nutritional fellowships are awarded to expert faculty to provide standardized, state-of-the-art care to their patients.
