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:
Red, Stop! Green, Go! Veggie Stoplight (celery stick, cream cheese & red, yellow and green bell pepper circles)= 0.8 carbs
Nutter Butter Lorax (Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookie, Easy Cheese & candy eyes)= 12 carbs
Truffula Tree Fruit (strawberries, grapes, blueberries & pineapple)= 6.3 carbs
Go, Dog. Go! Corn Dog (mini corn dog with banana wheels)= 8 carbs
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish Goldfish Crackers= 7 carbs
The Cat in the Hat String Cheese= 0 carbs
Meal Total= 34.1 carbohydrates
