When planning meals, it’s important to remember hidden sugars and carbs can pop up more often than you think, and in foods that aren't typically considered 'sweet’. Sugar can be used to add, preserve and sometimes even disguise flavour, and can pop up in pantry staples like sauces and bread. When checking labels, keep an eye out for sneaky sugar ‘alternatives’ like honey, molasses, agave nectar, corn syrup, corn sweetener, dextrose, sucrose, fructose and glucose.
Making fresh snacks and lunches doesn't have to be time-consuming, especially when you get the kids involved in the prep! Did you know kids are more likely to eat food they've helped prepare themselves?
When planning meals for your child, it’s important to remember carbs still need to make up a third of their diet. By swapping refined cereals for wholemeal, you can avoid steep spikes of blood sugar levels by slowly releasing energy.
Having a ‘menu’ of snacks with a controlled amount of carbs is a great strategy to help your child feel in control, make it easier for them to count their carbs, and help them feel like they aren’t on a restrictive diet.
