Peo­ple with di­a­betes need to snack be­tween meals

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURES -

En­joy­ing reg­u­lar meals and snacks can be an easy way to spread car­bo­hy­drates through­out the day and help avoid large spikes in blood sugar, but it’s not es­sen­tial for ev­ery­one with di­a­betes.

How­ever, if you re­quire in­sulin or take par­tic­u­lar di­a­betes med­i­ca­tion, then you might need sup­per and be­tween-meal snacks to pre­vent low blood sugar lev­els. This is quite in­di­vid­u­alised, so speak to your di­eti­tian to find out what’s best for you.
