Snacks play a very important role in the daily life of a person with diabetes; particularly those with Type 1 diabetes and insulin-requiring Type 2 diabetes.
For these people between meal and bedtime snacks are essential to keep blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible and to help prevent low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).
Wherever you go you should always carry a supply of snacks to eat in case of a low blood sugar reaction. Make sure to keep snacks in you purse, glove compartment of your car, and/or in your table drawer next to you.
Here is a list of snacks available at most stores and markets.
Low-Fat Granola Bars
Peanut Butter Crackers
Non-Fat Yogurt, Plain or Fruit
