The nutrition app contains more than a hundred easy-to-prepare recipes, ranging from nutritious snacks to good-for-you main dishes to delicious desserts. Users can access a list of ingredients, directions on how to prepare the dish, a shopping list to use at the grocery store, nutrition tips, and nutritional analysis information in a standard USDA label format. New recipes are added each month. We developed Ask the Nutritionist: Recipes for Fighting Cancer to encourage and empower cancer patients, and others, to explore and enjoy healthy eating habits, said Steven R. Singer, senior vice president for Communications at Dana-Farber. Studies have long shown that good nutrition is tied to good health, and, for those with cancer, treatment side effects can make eating well a real challenge. In addition to developing the Android version, Dana-Farber has made upgrades to the app to bring easy to operate functionality to users. There is a new search function that allows for faster and more intuitive searching of FAQs, and other topics answered by Dana-Farber nutritionists in the Ask the Nutritionists section.
