16 Lunches for Kids with Diabetes

It’s back-to-school!  Here in southern Arizona, the kids have been back in school for a couple of weeks.  Back in the east coast, they start after Labor Day in early September.  I suppose throughout the country in between, school begins in the middle of that time span!

Packing lunches can be challenging – you want the kids to eat healthy, but you don’t want everything to come home uneaten with their stomachs growling and their moods grumpy!  When your kiddo has diabetes, even more serious complications can happen if that lunch isn’t eaten.  Carbohydrate content is essential in meal planning for people with diabetes.

Along that note, I recently published an article on The Diabetes Council website that provides 16 new ideas for healthy, carbohydrate controlled lunches.  It’s particularly aimed for the student living with diabetes, but any kid (or adult!) can benefit from these ideas.

I hope you enjoy it!

What is your go-to lunch to pack for your child?
