CF Cooking Tips and Tricks
One of the most important daily aspects of managing CF is being able to understand how diet plays a role in managing this disease. Developing good nutrition habits early on can make a big difference in your overall health. It can be challenging to balance the dietary needs of a person with CF and those of other family members. The diet for someone who has CF is high in calories, fat and salt - the opposite of what someone without CF would eat.
