My 8 year old son has brain cancer. On april 22, 2012 he had an aggressive malignant tumor removed from his brain. 6 weeks later he started 5 times a week radiation for 7 weeks. During this time he threw up a lot and had no appetite. In turn, he lost a lot of weight and muscle. So much has been out of our control. I knew the only thing I could do to help was feed him the most nutritious food I could. The problem is he now has a stomach ulcer from all the narcotics, steroids and prolonged vomiting. So his stomach is sensitive. He also can not eat too much at once since his stomach shrunk. He also has food aversions one day and not the next. Food he loves, even water at times, taste like metal. I needed recipes that were high nutrient and good tasting for a kid. This book gave me this while also taking into consideration these issues that come with cancer treatment. This is a first of its kind geared for children actively in treatment and after treatment with nutrition in mind not just packing on weight. Thank you thank you thank you for this book. It has helped me feel like I am not just sitting around waiting to see what happens. I am actively helping my son fight this nasty disease from coming back. Oh yea, every recipe we have tried so far has been a hit! That hasn't happened before. I have recommended this cookbook to a support group I am on and a few have already ordered. Good luck and I hope another book will follow this one in the future.

Bought this as a gift for my secretary whose husband has throat cancer and has serious problems eating, tasting food, etc. She said she finds it extremely helpful in preparing food for him. It is not just for kids with cancer.

Easy to navigate, laminated pages, very smart for a book that children might be cooking from. A very beautiful look to the whole thing. This would make a terrific gift even for parents/kids who are perfectly healthy.

A lovely book full of wonderful recipes for children with cancer. Simple and tasty, and with hope and love, the book is perfectly laid out so you can find the necessary foods for cancer treatment side effects.

A kid with cancer is a tough problem with which to be dealing, but this book is incredibly useful in that it attacks getting good nutrition while going through treatment by offering foods and recipes that are presented clearly, simply and in a user friendly way.
Some of these recipes require a little work, but when you understand the critical importance nutrition in recovery, and the strength needed to endure treatments, this book is like a a little Bible for good healthy eating.
And the story is heart-warming and inspiring. Yes, there can be hope in food too!

I just received my copy of Happily Hungry, and I am almost in tears at the wonder of it. The book is a treat from the moment you open it - it's a beautiful, sturdily bound book (and for the book-smelling freaks like me, it smells so new and wonderful!), with dozens of gorgeous, tempting color photographs of food as well as photos and quotes from patients, survivors, and their loved ones. As if the appearance isn't enough to pull one in all by itself, the recipes sound amazing, yet most are so simple that they're not the least bit daunting. Best of all, they use healthy ingredients - free-range chicken, organics, the option to substitute soy milk and soy yogurt to make recipes dairy-free, agave nectar, fresh or frozen produce, all manner of wholesome choices. Even better, the recipes come with nutrition information! If you want to know how many grams of carbohydrate are in one of the hazelnut chocolate chip brownies (25g) or the butternut squash with ginger-garlic saute (8g), you just have to look right below the recipe and the information's there, calories, fat, protein, carbs, and sugars, along with notes indicating "cancer kid" situations this recipe might suit, such as nausea, appetite loss, constipation, mouth sores, fatigue, neutropenia, taste alterations...I cannot imagine a kinder or more thoughtful gift for a family facing childhood cancer or even a survivor of childhood cancer than this book. As someone who is both a long-term Hodgkin's childhood cancer survivor AND a former medical librarian, I *strongly* recommend this book to anyone who faces, treats, helps with, or has ever faced childhood cancer. It's a MUST-have.Read more ›

Very common sense for anyone wanting a healthful way. So many folks my age are going thru varying different cancer therapies and love the ease of the recipes in helping them get proper nutrition;I love sharing them.

If you know essentially nothing about healthy eating, this might be a very good introduction. However if you are a cook at all, and have had kids, you won't learn anything at all from this book. I am very supportive of the intention, however.
