I am recently married. My step son is 10 years old and was diagnosed with Type 1 at age 3. I have 2 children from a previous marriage, one has ADHD and the other has just been diagnosed with chronic tic disorder, so I am a very busy Mom. I have managed to learn to count his carbs, figure out the number of units he needs after a meal and when he needs a snack. He is only with us part time, but I am a pro-active mother and would like to learn more from anyone who has any advice on different snack, meal ideas, etc. Thanks in advance!
Are you on speaking terms with his mom or regular care giver? Maybe she could help.
there are many cookbooks that list carbs for each meal. Find a good low carb cookbook and they are most helpful. Lots of wonderful snack and meal ideas!
