Question:

From Madisonville, Tennessee, USA:

I'm a school nurse with two fairly new juvenile diabetics. They get 12 to 15 gram carbohydrate snacks. What are some healthy alternatives that I can provide them? Right now, parents send fruit roll-ups Rice Krispie treats, Little Debbie cakes, etc. This seems to shoot them up high and then they drop again. One of them is allergic to peanut butter.

Answer:

With regards to healthier snacks that are approximately 15 grams of carbohydrate and are peanut free, I would suggest the following:

  • animal crackers
  • Cheezit crackers
  • low carbohydrate yogurts
  • vanilla wafers
  • unsweetened applesauce
  • popcorn (3 c. of a lower fat variety)
  • Teddy Grahams
  • graham crackers
  • 8 ounces low fat milk
  • One low fat string cheese stick with five or six saltine crackers

    Please be sure to check the packages for serving sizes.
