Teach Your Kids to Cook With Diabetes

Reading books to your children is an effective and reassuring place to start their education. Children are typically diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes between the ages of 4 and 6, and then again during puberty between the ages of 14 and 16. Parents of young children are consumed with the medical aspects of managing this disease. Making major dietary changes, constantly monitoring blood sugar levels, and giving insulin shots can be overwhelming. For more information and important facts about diabetes, consider scheduling an appointment with a nutritionist who can help families plan menus and stock kitchens with healthy, diabetic-friendly snacks for kids.
