The advice in this section of the website, and the information contained in our Eat well during cancer booklet, is endorsed by the British Dietetic Association (BDA), the only body in the UK representing the whole of the dietetic workforce.
Founded in 1936, the BDA is one of the oldest and most experienced dietetic organisations in the world.
Deborah Howland BDA specialist dietitian says: “When going through cancer, eating can be a challenge and knowing what to eat can be very difficult and sometimes confusing. That’s why Eat well during cancer is an important piece of work which will be a real help to many people living with cancer.
“The Eat well during cancer booklet features some invaluable tips on how different foods can help people cope with some of the common side-effects of cancer treatment. It has the benefit of being written with specialist dietitians so people can be confident that the information is not only accurate but practical. The booklet won’t only be useful for patients but for health professionals too.”
The booklet has also been recognised by doctors, and was commended in the 2018 BMA Patient Information awards.
