‘Good Nutrition for Cancer Recovery’ is a high-protein high-calorie cookbook developed specifically for cancer patients with involuntary weight loss. The book, which was funded by the Health Research Board (HRB), aims to translate nutrition recommendations into simple accessible information and nutritious recipes that have the appropriate nutritional composition for this patient group.

19,000 copies of the cookbook have been produced and will be distributed to hospitals and cancer centres around the country. The cookbook has been endorsed by the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute, Irish Society for Pareneteral and Enteral Nutrtition and the Irish Society for Medical Oncology. Our hope is that this resource will assist anorectic patients in the challenging task of meeting their nutritional requirements and also help to bring enjoyment back to meal times.
