Kid Approved & Diabetic Friendly

Toddler Tuesday 12.27.16

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:

Turkey Rolls with Pretzel Sticks (roll slices of turkey, cut in half, snap a pretzel stick in half and thread through the middle of the turkey roll)= 3 carbs
Fruity Cottage Cheese Salad (cottage cheese, diced apple, diced pineapple, diced dried apricots mixed together)= 10 carbs *Recipe from Weelicious Lunches cookbook by Catherine McCord
Fresh Fruit (green grapes & pomegranate seeds)= 5 carbs
Olives, Pickle & Feta Cheese= 1 carb
Cooked Carrots= 1 carb

Meal Total= 20 carbohydrates
