It’s Healthy Eating Week and this year the British Nutrition Foundation has given us five challenges to complete including having breakfast and eating five helpings of fruit and veg every day.
Campaigns like this have contributed to a shift in attitude, which has affected our diets dramatically in the last decade. Last year it was estimated that there are over 540,000 vegans in the UK, up from 150,000 in 2006.
While the general public has a rethink about what goes on their plate, people with cancer don’t have a choice since treatment and the cancer itself can force them to manage their diet in a completely new way or lose appetite altogether.
We have some guidance on how cancer treatment can change appetite, but we want to know how this has affected you personally.
