ok this may sound bad, but anyone thqat has read any of my earlier post already knows i am a single mom 2 childern one a diabetic age 5 also I am in the Army.
This is my issue, since my daughter eas diagnosed just under 2 yrs ago, I find that her diet now comes from can food and single serving containers, THIS IS DRIVING MY CRAZY. I love to cook and aways have, but have found doing single servings and pre measured food so much less stressful when life is hecktic which it is almost always now. dont get me wrong I can almost now look at a plate and tell you how many carbs are on it just from site and be very close, but it just become a hassel then if she goes to somone elses house to play i pack her a baggy and of course all is single serving ppre package stuff so that it is easier on whom ever she is visiting. School lunch every day it is packed and where my son is on reduced price school lunch for 40 cents a meal my daughter is stuck taking in a cold packed lunch every day unless i can manage to go in with her. Any words of advice out there from other moms or dads? I know what she eats wont hurt her but one it gets exspensive and two she needs to learn to eat everything. I have just started forcing the veggies back on her, wasnt worth the fight before and the fears of the low sugers when she refused to eat them.
