A Diabetic Halloween treat!
I was puzzled about how I was going to handle the candy situation tonight with Sarah and went online to check carbs for candies. I went to a couple different sites and then remembered the American Diabetes Association website. I was thinking that I would not have luck and then I saw a picture of kids and costumes and after a little searching found a complete list of common Halloween treats! What a blessing in disguise! This list is so comprehensive and helpful to me. For those of you who aren't aware, my daughter Sarah is a Type 1 diabetic. Diagnosed Dec 27th, 2008. This is our first Halloween with diabetes... Mama is nervous! So anyhow, support your local American Diabetes chapter and right now Rite Aid stores/pharmacies are taking donations, so please be generous! Diabetes isn't just for old, fat people, little kids are diagnosed everyday at a rate of 10,000 a day actually! So anyhow enjoy tonight everyone!
