Healthy Snacks for Diabetic Kids

Apple SlicesDiabetic Lifestyle has an exhaustive and organized list of healthy snacks for diabetic kids. Below is a list of some of those snacks. There is diversity in the offerings that should keep your child from becoming bored with snacks to the point of cheating.

From the bread group:

  • Air-popped popcorn
  • Graham crackers
  • Pretzels
  • Vanilla wafers

From the dairy foods group:

  • Frozen, low-fat, no sugar added yogurt or ice cream
  • Fruit smoothies (made with non-fat yogurt, fruit, skim milk, and ice cubes)
  • String cheese

From the fruits and vegetables groups:

  • Apple wedges
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Cucumber slices
  • Celery sticks stuffed with low-fat cream cheese or peanut butter

Whole food snacks are the best for children, but we know that they are not always satisfactory to a child’s taste buds. You can read the extended list HERE and you can visit this really cool Pinterest board filled with snack suggestions and recipes. Do you have some of your own? Please share in the comment section.
