Thankfully enough, I knew Rocco had diabetes when he was just turning two. So, I started a habit early on that has blessed me during some cold days. When his blood sugar is too high for hot cocoa, he has tea. He doesn't fight it because when his blood sugar is high, cocoa doesn't sound good anyway. Peppermint tea is a favorite option in the winter. Truth be told, on those days when he is growing and "STARVING" all the time, I have often fantasized about giving him some of my appetite suppressant blueberry green tea. I have never bit that bullet! yet.. LOL!
Btw, my funny friend told me this pictures makes it look like Rocco is plugged into the wall. Too funny!
Here is an example of what we have after school if Rocco's blood sugar is high. Total carbs 9. He didn't like the cream cheese. I will try ranch dip next time! By the way, why does EVERY kid love ranch???? Brussel sprouts, blah! Smother them in ranch: "Mom! these are awesome!". One of the many mysteries...
