National Diabetes Awareness Month: Websites for Children with Type 1

The doctor takes from the child blood.Keeping children mindful of their Type 1 diabetes and remaining creative and encouraged as you work to keep them healthy can be hard. There are some great web resources for both kids and parents that offer information, instruction and lots of encouragement. Let’s take a look.

Spoonful by Disney

This is a delightful site as only Disney could produce. You will find interactive games and activities for children as well as helpful hints for parents. There are recipes and craft ideas too.  Disney also has partnered with Lilly to create Type 1 Everyday Magic, a site with even more information and resources, including books for kids.

Children with Diabetes

Children with Diabetes is an online community that is information rich. It is for children, parents and even adults with diabetes. Two of the goals of the community are (1) children will not feel alone with Type 1 and (2) adults and children are given the space to take ownership of the disease for wellness sake.

Parenting Diabetic Kids

This online community hosts a forum for interactive discussions, recipes and menus for children with Type 1, tons of information and profiles of children with Type 1.

Diabetes Kids and Teens – Australia

Yes this site originates from Australia but its content for children is so wonderful that it transcends location and culture. It is interactive and rich with information.

These sites were selected because they are full of useful information and resources. Moreover, they can be good for both children and parents dealing with Type 1 diabetes. Do you know of more? Please let me know in the comment section.
