Welcome to this week’s Mini Cancer Companion Podcast! This week, we’re discussing what nutritious food you should try and incorporate into your diet during and after cancer treatment

Eating the right kinds of foods before, during, and after cancer treatment can help you feel better and stay stronger. But we know it’s not that simple, is it?

There may be times during your cancer treatment when you are unable to eat as healthy as you would like. When you’re experiencing sore mouth, difficulty swallowing, and general loss of appetite, how are you supposed to keep your diet balanced and nutritious? We’ve got some tips that can help.


On this week’s episode:

  • We hear from Liz Butler – a highly-experienced nutritional therapist who specialises in supporting people with cancer. With 17 years of experience, Liz tells us what five things we should keep in our diet during treatment.

Background reading:

  • Check out our two-part series on managing food during the cancer journey for lots of helpful tips about what to try eating, and how to manage a variety of symptoms and side-effects.
  • Then take a look at our Eating Well guide – also full of reliable information from experts and the cancer community.

We’d love to know what you think!
