Most of us aren’t looking for recipes that add calories. But for families with sickle cell disease, it’s a different story. Because kids and teens with sickle cell disease break down red blood cells faster than other children do, their bodies use more energy and need more calories to maintain health, avoid complications and keep pace with their peers.
High calorie foods and extra snacks can be very helpful. Recognizing this, and not seeing another resource that quite fit the bill, the sickle cell team at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, led by dietitian Michell Fullmer, developed a unique cookbook offering recipes for appealing calorie-dense meals and snacks.
For people with sickle cell disease, a diet that provides plenty of fuel in the form of calories, protein, vitamins and minerals helps to replace red blood cells.
