Diabetes Update


Had an appt. w/nutritionist today ... She expressed balance thru integrating more fiber and proteins to our diet plan. Her food ideas were (excluding~cheeses,yogurt, nuts/peanutbutter) : "Kashi" bars, hummus(a personal favorite), "Cracklin' Oatbran", "Frosted mini wheats", "Puffs" cereals, "Thomas" multi grain/hi fiber english muffins, 1/2c. of "Eddy's" slow churned lite ice cream was fine ... She did however say that sweet kiddie cereals were a no no (derrr..) and those "Special K" breakfast bars had too much sugar as well as "Go-gurts" and "Kellogg's"Rice Crispies treats (which uses the ADA's name on the box etc..?)... At any rate breakfast bars/cereal bars have to be switched to Kashi type bars , white breads and muffins to hi fiber options, and Regular yogurt is still the best bet. Of course we eat fruit etc.. BUT 3 snack times a day turns into ALOT of snacks! Kids really get sick of eating if its the same thing every time... We'll see how this works.. Regarding LAST diabetic update ~ ice cream at night DOES keep him from dropping at 4:am on an active day... SOON his #'s will change again w/the warm weather! He's always is active w/good #'s in the spring summer.. Maybe we should just move to a sunnier destination !! LOL
