Like "Hi Jessica! One of the first things I did when I was diagnosised was buy a book by Hope S. Warshaw called the Diabetes Food and Nutrition Bible. It has a lot of great info that includes recipes, portion sizes, meal planning and explains what to look for when reading food labels as well as other helpful things. Another thing I did was I cut out as much sugar from my diet as I could. If Cole likes sweets that maybe a hard thing to do. Welcome to Diabetic Connect. I hope you and Cole find as much help and enjoyment from this site as the rest of us! *hugs* Judi "
