Health Tip: Snacking Healthier With Diabetes
What experts suggest
(HealthDay News) -- Just because you have diabetes doesn't mean you can't enjoy a healthier snack once in a while.
The American Diabetes Association suggests:
- Snack on whole grains, fruits and vegetables. These provide energy and help you feel fuller.
- Watch portion sizes. Use measuring cups and spoons.
- When you snack, don't forget to include the carb count in your daily total.
- Avoid snacking mindlessly while you're doing something else, such as driving or watching TV.
