Toddler Tuesday 10.25.16

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 in a Planet Box:

Jack O’ Lantern Quesadilla (tortilla cut out with a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter, filled with shredded cheddar cheese and microwaved for 15 seconds)= 9 carbs
Trail Mix (peanuts, raisins, butterschotch chips, chocolate chips & M&M’s)= 6 carbs
High Protein Halloween Dirt Cups (recipe from 17 carbs
Fresh Fruit (mandarin oranges & grapes)= 11 carbs
Frozen Peas= 2 carbs
Salsa= 3 carbs

Meal Total= 48 carbohydrates
