If I may, I think this is at the root of the problem. It's just not wise to discuss the food choices of toddlers or kids or teens with anyone lest you want to be open to other folk's opinions of said food, regardless of whether the kid in question has Type 1. But particularly in our Type 1 kids, due to the avalanche of misinformation about the disease, discussing what a child eats is like waving a red flag in front of a bull. People, for reasons I.do.not.understand. feel that "diabetes" is the one disease about which they have something to say. Best way to avoid hearing ignorant comments is to limit discussion of all things related to D to the close friends and family who won't misunderstand. Sad, but I think true.
