MYNUTRIKITCHEN COOKERY DEMO

Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy can affect the way foods and drinks taste, so can take some of the joy of eating away. This session is designed to give you the tools to help your patients enjoy food again during and after cancer treatment. 
 
One in two people will develop cancer at some point during their lifetime. Cancer treatment can cause food to taste unpleasant, bland or odd – which can really impact a person’s ability to eat well and enjoy eating.
 
For this MyNutriKitchen session we’ll be joined by Ryan Riley, founder of cancer cookery initiative Life Kitchen, and Specialist Oncology Dietitian Adele Hug.
 
They’ll cover:
• How cancer treatments can change the way food and drinks taste
• How to enhance the flavour of dishes to help patients enjoy food and eat well
• Practical tips and resources to for those living with cancer
 

Ryan will be demonstrating two delicious flavour-packed recipes that your patients and clients could easily recreate at home. Adele will share the importance of eating well during and after cancer treatment and take part in an extended Q&A alongside Ryan to bring both science and practice to life.
