Stressing over food options for your Type 1?
A Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis for your child changes a lot of things, including how you approach meals and what you think you can and can't feed them.
If your child is recently diagnosed you might feel confined to things like string cheese, lunchmeat roll ups, and beef sticks. And those only hold for so long before they are burned out with those options.
When we started our journey, there wasn't a lot of food recipes or suggestions for CHILDREN with diabetes. The only suggestions I found were for adults with diabetes and I don't know about yours, but a handful of almonds and avocado toast, were not going to cut it with my kid!
So I spent a lot of time testing and making and revising things my kid would eat, that wouldn't impact blood sugar, or that were good for no or low carb needs.
Browse our selection of kid-friendly, low carb, recipes that your Type 1 is sure to enjoy. All recipes have been taste tested and approved by my Type 1 son. We hope you love them as much as he does!
