For some children and young people with diabetes, snacks are important to prevent hypoglycaemia at certain times of the day and before, during and after exercise.
Extra snacks may be difficult for you to fit into your day, or may contain extra sugar, fat or salt that isn’t part of a healthy diet.
It is best to choose foods from the “Low Fat Snacks or “Medium Fat Snacks” pictured above most often. Fruit, crackers etc..
