Nourishment Notes

Tart & Sweet Flavors

Taste can become altered during chemo treatment, making certain foods and flavors unappealing. Consuming tart or sweet flavors can make eating and drinking more enjoyable.

Cold, Uncooked Foods

Cold foods that aren’t cooked, such as fruit salsa, smoothies, yogurt and fruit, are typically well-tolerated in patients experiencing altered taste.
