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?

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
