Darren Daulton Foundation grant recipients have access to a Registered Dietitian to provide them with comprehensive nutrition resources and personalized nutrition coaching to help them during all stages of their cancer treatment.
The foods you eat during cancer treatment can have a big impact on your overall health. Changes to your diet can help your body stay strong and healthy during treatment and help ease some of the side effects of cancer treatment. A registered dietitian can help provide nutritional education on healthy foods to eat during treatment, foods high in vitamins and minerals. A registered dietitian can also provide tips and recipes to add additional calories and protein to your diet as well as tips on staying hydrated.
