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:
Grilled Leprechaun Sandwich (spread butter on two slices of low carb bread, layer 1 slice of provolone cheese, top with chopped broccoli florets, add another slice of provolone cheese, close sandwich and grill on both sides)= 10 carbs *Pictured is 1/2 sandwich. **Recipe is from The Best Homemade Kids’ Lunches on the Planet by Laura Fuentes
Salad (shredded lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, diced ham & Ranch dressing)= 1 carb
Veggie Straws= 2 carbs
Pickles= 1 carb
Kiwi= 3 carbs
Meal Total= 17 carbohydrates
