Pediatric cancer is the leading cause of non-accidental childhood death in the United States[34]. 80% of children experience malnutrition during cancer treatment[34]. Malnutrition effects with cancer treatment: increases toxicities (neuropathy, infections, physical function, quality of life)[10]. Exacerbates dietary and metabolic changes[5,30]. Malnutrition is variable in diagnosis and interventions. Standard screening and treatment are not widely agreed upon in pediatrics[25]. Adult cancer cachexia is more studied and standardized [29]. Nutritional needs are more static in adults, while protein and caloric needs change and evolve for the growing child [4]. This systematic review aims to: summarize evidence-based studies of screening and nutritional intervention for children with cancer; highlight the need for standardizing malnutrition assessment and treatment.
