Parents need to change their perceptions of what constitutes healthy food when they are struggling to feed a child on chemotherapy. Many parents have ingrained habits of low-fat cooking and food preparation. These habits must be replaced with habits of constantly finding ways to add calories to their childs food:

• Add butter or margarine to hot cereal, eggs, pasta, rice, cooked vegetables, mashed potatoes, and soups.

• Use melted butter as a dip for raw vegetables and cooked seafood such as shrimp, crab, and lobster.

• Use sour cream to top meats, baked potatoes, and soups.

• Use mayonnaise instead of salad dressing on salads, sandwiches, and hard-cooked eggs.

• Add mayonnaise or sour cream when making hamburgers or meat loaf.

• Use cream instead of milk over cereal, puddings, Jell-O, and fruit.

• Make milkshakes, puddings, and custards with cream instead of milk.

• Serve your child whole milk to drink instead of 2 percent milk.

• Serve bread hot so it will absorb more butter.

• Spread bagels, muffins, or crackers with cream cheese and jelly or honey.

• Make hot chocolate with cream, and add marshmallows.

• Add granola to cookie, bread, and muffin batters. Sprinkle granola on ice cream, pudding, and yogurt.

• Serve meat and vegetables with sauces made with cream and pan drippings.

• Combine cooked vegetables with dried fruit.

• Add dried fruits to recipes for cookies, breads, and muffins.

Although nobody gets a parenting manual or bible in the delivery room, it is our duty as parents to try to make our kids as well rounded, happy and confident as possible. It is a lot easier to bring up great kids than it is to try and fix problems caused by bad parenting, when our kids have become adults. Our children are all individuals - they are not our property but people in their own right.
