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:
Cracked Nut Butter & Banana Sandwiches (Cracked Nut Butter (or any nut butter) spread between thin slices of banana)= 8.7 carbs
MySuperSnack Blueberry Banana Acai (Soft) Granola Bites= 13 carbs
Fresh Fruit (pineapple, raspberries & blueberries)= 5.2 carbs
Cucumbers & Tomatoes= 0.8 carbs
Avocado= 1.5 carbs
Broccoli= 0.4 carbs
Meal Total= 29.6 carbohydrates
