Cuddles Foundation is an NGO in India providing holistic nutritional support to underprivileged kids fighting cancer.

Basic Information

Cuddles Foundation brings holistic food and nutrition to underprivileged children fighting cancer. They work through partnerships with government and charitable hospitals that treat underprivileged children for cancer. Their nutritionists, trained specifically for paediatric cancer nutrition, are placed in government hospitals and monitor the child’s progress, create diet plans and nutritional charts, counsel their parents and educate them in home-based nutrition. They provide children undergoing treatment with food, hot meals, nutritional supplements and ration baskets as per their requirements so that the kids have the strength to fight their cancer. Till date, they have partnered with 35 hospitals in 20 cities. In 2017, with the help of individual donors, volunteers and the Cuddles Advisory Board, they were able to develop an app that would standardise the delivery of nutritional support across all the hospitals they work. The Cuddles FoodHeals app is the first of its kind platform that helps automate mathematical functions for a nutritionist - like calculating the grade of malnourishment, BMI, calorie deficiency, etc. The app also aids her in counselling, diet planning and mapping progress of the child through the course of the treatment.
