Nutrition for Medical Conditions – Cystic Fibrosis

These education resources are specifically targeted for children with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and their families. Children with CF often need to follow a high energy diet and require salt supplementation. They may also need to be on pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) to help them digest and absorb food. Children with CF should see a dietitian who specialises in the area regularly to monitor their growth and give individualised dietary advice.
