Halloween Treats & Diabetes

While Halloween is a difficult holiday for those with dietary restrictions, it can still be a fun holiday! Ideally, those diagnosed with diabetes want to keep their 1-3 daily snacks to 15-30 grams of carbohydrate. The chart below was created to help guide you to better eating this holiday. Rather than feeling deprived this Halloween and trying to avoid all candy, use this chart as a guide. Pick your favor candy or chocolate and make note of the correct portion size. Often, we realize we are happy with a smaller portion when we allow ourselves to savor it. And the more planning we do ahead of time in regards to our meals and snacks, the more likely we are going to make better choices. If you were limited to 15-30 grams of carbohydrate for a snack, what would you choose?
