It's the time of year with all of the end of year class parties and such which of course means carb-laden food. My 8 year old's class party is this week, and on the menu is cotton candy, water ice, soft pretzels, watermelon and strawberries. Of course the first three give me pause - so much sugar in two and so many carbs in another. I am usually pretty lenient with class parties and do my best to dose and move on, but both water ice and cotton candy are just straight sugar. My son is VERY sensitive to looking different than the other kids and feeling left out. I looked into no sugar added water ice, which is only 6 carbs less than regular, so seemed kind of pointless. What do you all do in these types of situations? I will be at the party to help out and dose insulin. I am not interested in starting or participating in a debate about the merits of this kind of food at school parties - I know lots of people have strong feelings about this. I am just interested in what other parents would do when faced with this kind of food at a party. Thanks in advance for your help!
