Cuddles Foundation

Feed a Child. Starve Cancer.

Food Heals:

Childhood cancer is mostly curable. But in India, with up to 40% of children with cancer being malnourished at diagnosis, survival is a problem. Cuddles Foundation is on a mission to change that with its FoodHeals Program. Here’s how:

• Provide trained nutritionists to government and charity cancer hospitals.

• Share food and supplements with patients and families.

• Support caregivers with the knowledge to make the right food choices.

Good Food Helps Medicine Work:

By sponsoring the FoodHeals program, you help children experience:

1. Lesser side-effects and treatment complications

2. Fewer breaks or delays in treatment

3. Improved chances for survival

4. Better immunity against infection

5. A feeling of being supported and cared for

Cuddles Foundation’s FoodHeals Program is customised to a child’s medical condition providing the right nutrition needed for the child to complete her treatment successfully. Here's how:

• Assess: Screening and assessing the nutritional status of every child seeking treatment for cancer in their partner hospitals

• Evaluate: Evaluating side-effects that may negatively impact her nutritional status

• Prescribe: Finalising the right nutrition therapy and prescribing a customised diet plan.

• Provide: Aiding and supporting the child and family by providing nutritional supplements, hot meals, in-meals, eggs, bananas and monthly ration baskets for a family of four.

• Monitor: Continuously monitoring her nutritional status and reassessing plans, if necessary.

• Support: Supporting patient families with the knowledge to make healthier food choices by organising parent support group meetings, videos and talks on the subject.
