Toddler Tuesday- Rainbow Pasta Salad

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.
