Packaged snacks sure make carb-counting easy, but they can be lacking in nutrition -- not to mention imagination! This semester, makeover your after-school munchies ritual by treating your kids to an afternoon in the kitchen with mom and making one of these recipes from Dishing It Up Disney Style: A Cookbook for Families With Type 1 Diabetes, each complete with nutrition facts. For more, request a free copy of the cookbook from your diabetes healthcare provider. These books are not for sale and are distributed exclusively by Lilly representatives to many pediatric endocrinologist offices in the United States.
