kids snacks

Healthy snacks are great for everyone. But they are especially important for children with diabetes. Proper snacking can provide energy between meals and help manage blood sugar levels.

What Makes a Snack Diabetes-Friendly?

Snacks can supply a significant amount of your child's daily calories, so make them count!

Feed your little ones something that's low-carb and packed with nutrients:

 ≤ 15 carbs

≤ 200 calories

 Protein to support growth & satiety

Fiber to aid digestion & stunt BG spikes

 Vitamins and minerals for overall health
