Getting the balance right with our food is so important, especially when you've been diagnosed with cancer. Navigating all the information around food and cancer can be very overwhelming. So here's are some no-nonsense, evidence-based advice and tips to help you make the right choices for you

Food is more than fuel – our bodies require more than just energy to survive. We require a whole range of nutrients. So here are our resources and advice that can help.

"I promise this is not another prescription and we invite you to dip in and out of it whenever you feel the need to. Food should be a pleasure as well as something to fuel your body with, so enjoy what you’re eating when you can, and don’t beat yourself up if you’re not eating what you think you ‘should’. I hope you find this resource empowering and helpful." - Dr Hazel Wallace

If I have one message I would like to get across then it’s: ‘Look after yourself’!You’re worth it, and do it in ways that are good for YOU.
