Fun Food

You’re probably growing right now. And you need extra energy to keep up! One way you can get energy is by eating the right amount of food that’s good for you.

But what’s the right amount of food? You probably have to eat a lot more than kids without CF. That’s because CF makes mucus that gets in the way when your body tries to use food for energy. Eating more will help your body get the energy it needs.
