Trying to figure out what to cook for a diabetic child can be difficult, but there are a few kid friendly diabetic dinner recipes that can help you make dinner fun for the whole family. This book provides ideas for delicious, nutritious dinners and snacks. The recipes are also kid-friendly and may even help you introduce new tastes to your child. With serving sizes and carbohydrate grams included, you can choose foods that meet your child’s dietary needs.
For healthy diabetic dinners, consider stir-fries. If you want to reduce cholesterol and saturated fat, use skinless chicken. Liz’s Healthy Table recipe calls for garlic, ginger, jalapeno and reduced-soy sauce. Avoid salty sauce as too much salt can increase blood pressure and heart disease risk. Instead, opt for a lower-sodium sauce. Make sure to check the labels carefully, too.
When choosing healthy dinners for your child with diabetes, make sure to consider the nutrition value of foods and beverages. Kids with diabetes need to eat a wide variety of foods to keep their blood sugar levels under control. These recipes have been selected by a dietitian and diabetes educator. They are also kid-friendly and nutritious for anyone who enjoys cooking together. And if you’re cooking for two, you’ll have less dishes to wash up.
Another kid-friendly diabetic dinner recipe uses marinated salmon and vegetables. One serving has 225 calories, 19 grams of carbohydrates, 10 g of sugar, and four g of protein. A large lettuce leaf can be used to wrap the salad. A healthy version of General Tso’s chicken is also available. Just be sure to eliminate the deep-frying. If you don’t have time for the recipe, you can substitute zucchini for the pasta.
