You do not need special 'diabetic foods', (e.g. jams, marmalades, biscuits, cakes, sweets, chocolates) because you have diabetes. Many of these products are not very tasty, they are expensive and often there are cheaper sugar free alternatives available in the supermarkets. 'Diabetic foods' have as much fat and calories as their sugary equivalents and they are, therefore not suitable if you are overweight. Here's what you can do though.
Eating the right food but also eating regularly is important to control your Type 2 diabetes.
Your blood glucose will be better controlled if you eat little and often. This means having regular meals and snacks so that your food is spread through out the day. Do not skip meals and make sure you take breakfast.

There are plenty of meals to choose from and here area few examples to show you how easy your diet control can be.
