People often ask ‘Is it alright to snack when I have diabetes?” The answer is yes, snacks can be taken as part of a healthy, well balanced diet. Take a look at our healthy snack ideas below.
Well planned snacks can help you to feel satisfied for longer and lead to better meal choices throughout the day.
It’s all about being snack savvy! Try to avoid processed snacks like chips, buns, chocolates, pastries, cakes. They contain high amounts of bad fats and refined carbohydrate. These often don’t keep you feeling satisfied for long and send your glucose levels on a roller coaster ride.
Instead we want to focus on choosing whole food snacks which contain good quality nutrition, are better for your glucose levels and keep you satisfied for longer. The closer the snack to its original form- the better!
