    Hi everyone
    We have a 4.5 year old grandson that has recently been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.
    For the past year his weight has remained around 11 kg.
    He has never been a big eater,so we were wondering if anyone could suggest meals or snacks that a diabetic could eat to increase his weight ?
    His height / weight percentiles are in the lowest 5%
    Thanks in advance

    Does his pediatrician have any suggestions? Is he well-nourished and just small? Is there some underlying issue? Children with diabetes can eat the same foods non-diabetic children eat. What insulin regimen is he on?
