    I don't think so. I've done a little bit of research and there's no concrete evidence to suggest that there are any specific foods that will radically help to increase white blood cells.

    As far as diet goes I'm generally going with the flow and being a little bit flexible. It's common for chemo to have an effect on taste buds and appetite, so I cut her some slack there. She's often too sick to eat during chemo rounds so to an extent I let her eat whatever she wants when she is up to it, but I always offer healthy food as well as random things she requests. She's under the care of a dietitian at the cancer centre and they say that I'm doing the right thing. It's about getting calories in and if she's totally off her food we try to find what she can stomach. At the moment she's into porridge, raw apples, rice crackers, Milo with milk, spaghetti bolognese and cheese sandwiches. She also picks vegetables off my dinner plate but isn't so keen on them if she has her own plate (weird).

    I also like to get her out for a walk if she's up to it and the weather permits. Everything I read says that light activity is a good thing so I encourage her to walk when she can, but I always have the pram with us so that she can rest.

    Sounds like you're doing a fantastic job.

    I agree, you're doing a fantastic job. I know mums whose kids aren't having chemo and they would be stoked if their kids ate that.

    After DD1 had her tonsils out at 3 I let her eat what she wanted. She still talks about the time I let her have a milkshake and a happy meal at the same time, it made having her tonsils out one of the highlights of her life!

    I hate to be that person who even thinks that way, but you may want to watermark your picture or something. That pic of your DD could be stolen and become one of those "this girl is fighting cancer and was overwhelmed by her birthday cake, how many likes can she get?" They just steal pics and write captions with no truth at all. Like that pic about our Anzac spirit blah blah with a pic of the American war cemetery!

    Nice work. I'm 99% sure no one on here would, and it's buried in a thread so not easy accessible in Google searches. But once someone has it you can't get it back.
