 Food Issues and Picky Eating

One of the biggest challenges with our CF kids is around food. We all know the importance of keeping up their weight and most of us have probably experienced how hard that can be at times.  This section will give you some essentials around dealing with food issues with kids with cystic fibrosis. 

Many of the tips have been shared by other CF Parents. If you have a food tip that isn't here, please share it by sending me an email. Thanks!
