Many of the recipes include ingredients that are high in fat or sugar, to help people get enough energy and maintain their weight during cancer treatment.

Most recipes are simple and quick to prepare, to make it as easy as possible for patients to cook when they feel unwell.

The booklet has been planned and written with food experts, including dietitians, and recipes have come from people and organisations, including BBC Good Food, Canned Food UK,, NHS Choices, the Oesophageal Patients Association and Waitrose.
