My DD just started 2nd grade yesterday. She goes to a small private school with no nurse so all of her management is done in the classroom by the teacher, who we train. They eat ALL day it seems like. In years prior each day there would be a "snack friend" who brought an AM snack for the entire class and a PM class for the entire class. There is a safe snack list that parents buy from because it is a nut free school. This week, since it is the first week the school is providing snacks. They aren't awfully unhealthy, mostly just goldfish crackers, but they are carb filled. Because of two snacks/day plus lunch DD is staying high all day. She eats breakfast at 7:30 or so, has a snack around 9:45, lunch at 12, snack at 2:15 school is out at 3. She never has a chance for her blood sugar to come down much because as soon as it does a little, they eat again. Today she woke up at a nice 114, but at lunch she was 250 and when she checked on the way home she was 244. This year they aren't doing snack friend so kids will bring their own snacks eventually. I know we could have been doing this the whole time, but it's been a balance between trying to keep her happy and eating with the other kids, eating what they eat and trying to manage BG. I don't want D to isolate her. So as long as they are doing group snacks, I want her to participate. Once they bring their own, she'll be having low carb snacks and she can have a treat with lunch. So after all that, my question is would you just let her be high during the day or would you change her basal rate so that she comes more into range to combat the constant eating, just until the snack situation changes, then put it back where it was before since she won't have so many carbs coursing through her veins. Also, WHY do they think kids can't go more than 2 hours without eating?? I don't want them to starve her, but seriously, she isn't THAT hungry 2 hours after breakfast and lunch!
