Diet is an important part of looking after yourself after your cancer treatment ends.

There’s a lot of information in the media about different foods and diets that are good for cancer and this can be overwhelming. It can be difficult to know what to eat and what to avoid.

A healthy, balanced diet with a range of fresh food from the five major food groups is recommended.
