Kid Approved & Diabetic Friendly

Toddler Tuesday 3.8.16

In an attempt to cater to those of you who have very young children with type 1 diabetes, I have created a “Toddler Tuesday” series. Each Tuesday, I pick one of my toddler daughter’s meals from the week to share with you- the Toddler Tuesday  Meal. These featured meals are meant to give you inspiration of new things to make and try for those of you with younger kids. Plus, all featured meals include the carbohydrate breakdown of each food item, so that you can easily add/remove items to accommodate your child’s likes/dislikes.


Here’s this week’s Toddler Tuesday meal, assembled inside an innobaby container:

Spinach Orzo Salad (cooked orzo mixed with a bit of olive oil, baby spinach, feta cheese, raisins, and a squeeze of lemon juice)= 15 carbs
Fresh Fruit (strawberries, blackberries & kiwi)= 3 carbs
Cottage Cheese & Peaches= 6 carbs
Yellow Grape Tomato= 1/2 carb
Club Cracker Minis= 4 carbs
Olives= 1/2 carb

Meal Total= 29 carbohydrates
