my little boy needs a snack to keep his sugar regulated through the night. when he was first diagnosed the nurse said that some parents do ice cream as an easy way to get the 30 carbs. we would like to give him something that is more nutritional. any ideas? thanks

You need to give him a complex carb. You really need to stay away from simple sugars and icecream when you are trying to keep him level through the night. We give our son popcorn or sometimes he will eat a peanut butter sandwich, something along those lines. I hope this helps...

we gave toast or cereals when megan was on the 2 injections but now she is on the multi injections she dont need a snack anymore as she injects after every meal and a slow release 1 b4 bed, she is going on the pump in the summer so dont know how that will work with bed time snacks. but i dont think ice cream is really suitable every night no good for their teeth.

we have been giving him no sugar added carnation breakfast (small amount) and a graham cracker. It took us some tries to see just how much of the powder to add but we got it down and that will carry him through the night.

My son is the same way, we have yogurt, my son only needs 15 carbs, but you could add milk. Ice cream should be a treat, not the norm.
