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
