My mother in law just sent DD a book in the mail. Diabetes Snacks, Treats, and Easy Eats for Kids. Nice gesture, but the entire intro is about overweight children and the prevalence of type 2 diabetes. I thought if we'd gotten anybody to understand type 1, it was her. Apparently not. The recipes are fine I suppose, but we really don't limit DD on very many foods. She gets very little juice except when low, very rarely soda. She gets an average amount of treats and she eats lots of fruits and veggies. Basically she eats a well rounded diet for any kid, and not much has changed from how we fed her prior to her diagnosis. I feel like I'm banging my head into a brick wall when I tell people, "no, she can eat everything your child can eat" and then they still don't let her have what everybody else is eating. Why don't people listen to me when they ask and I tell them the answer and then they ignore me. Why even ask if you think you know better than me?? Sure, some things are more difficult for her to eat, like pizza, oatmeal etc, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to let her eat them when everyone else is eating them. Grr.
