My neighbors found out their son is diabetic and I need a high carb kid friendly snack for him before he goes to bed. Any ideas?

High carb?

post #3 of 13

I'll be following this---I have a diabetic friend that I cook for on occasion----

post #4 of 13

On the rare occasions when I had a gestational diabetic on the unit the PM snack would always be high protein with a small amt of carbs.

Half of a cheese sandwich with a tiny smear of mayo.

And milk.

2% milk if I remember correctly.

The combo of the above prevented a huge spike (and resulting crash) in overnite blood sugar.

Just a slow release which would last until the finger stick blood sugar check in am.

Then we could calculate her insulin dose and get it aboard before her breakfast.

Assuming the neighbor's child is under the care of a pediatrician and maybe things are different.

If so...bowing out gracefully.

High carb? Is the kids bs bottoming out overnight?

T1or 2 I'm T2 and would never eat a high carb snack and go to bed.

There is no cookie cutter approach to treating and managing diabetes, different foods affect us all differently. I have a friend that is T2 and he still drinks and eats stuff that I can't and manages to keep his bs in check.

It was and still is a learning curve for me. A good dinner is a protein of choice and brown rice pilaf with lots of vegies and greens mixed in and then the secret ingredient of cooked oatmeal also mixed in. Oatmeal is magical in it's ability to regulate absorption of sugars into the bloodstream. Sounds weird, but when mixed in, you will hardly even notice it.

Most likely the pedi has already sent the family for the child's nutrition counseling and DM management education.

A great tool is out there to make the switch of lifestyle a bit easier.

A hand held device that keeps track of calories and the further breakdown of protein, carbs and fiber, fats.

Pretty nifty all they have to do is program it and log BSs and food intake it does the rest.

Even suggests menus and snacks.
