Jdrf and Healthy Snacks for Kid's ♥

So the annual Juvenile Diabetes Research Fundraising Walk is coming up today and I walk every year in honor of my mother that had this disease and passed at a young age of 37. It is important for children to eat a healthy balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, proteins and low sugar, especially diabetic children. Here is my healthy recipe 

Low carb, nutritious snacks are crucial for kids with diabetes and unfortunately much of what’s out there is quite the opposite. Even for kids without diabetes, managing blood sugar from an early age can go a long way towards preventing high insulin levels and diabetes later on in life. But eating healthy and sticking to a low-glycemic diet can be very tricky with kids. The key is to find nutritious snacks that will appeal to those picky palates that are tempted daily by a barrage of sugary and empty calories. So think protein, fiber, and healthy fats — you’ll help set them up for a lifetime of good health.

Here are some diabetic kid friendly snacks..

Trail mix (over the age of two)
Low fat string cheese
Melon balls 
Veggies and dip cups ( A more fun way to eat your veggies!)
Grapes (frozen grapes are great in the summer)
Apple wedges
Rice cakes with all natural fruit spread or peanut butter
Banana slices with peanut butter
Low fat frozen yogurt
