Food Heals Cancer
  • Crisis: 50,000 children are diagnosed with cancer every year in India. 40% of them are malnourished at diagnosis. When they are well-nourished, children are able to tolerate treatment, experience reduced side-effects and stay on the treatment plan as scheduled, thus ensuring they get better sooner.
  • Programs: i) Nutrition Counseling and Diet Planning- The Cuddles FoodHeals app is used to assess a child's grade of malnourishment and medical condition, evaluate his dietary habits and calorie deficiency in order to plan his diet for speedy recovery and monitor his progress ii) In Meal Supplementation - The Foundation provides fresh, nutritionally balanced, calorie appropriate hot meals to every child visiting the hospital OPD for treatment; nutritional supplements like Pediasure, Pediagold, etc as well as feeding tubes and nature's super food like eggs, bananas, dry fruits, ghee are also provided iii) Ration Basket- A family of 4 is provided with monthly ration supplies curated by Clinical Nutritionists during the course of the treatment iv) Caregiver Support- provides coping mechanism and emotional support to caregivers and includes Parents' Support Groups to counsel the caregivers about nutrition and hygiene.
  • Outcome: In 2018-19, Cuddles Foundation reached out to 155,058 children across 17 cities, 25 hospitals through 37 nutritionists.
