First up, I know this post will cause some controversy and that is the last thing I want to do.
PLEASE DO NOT GET MAD AT ME. We all have different opinions on how to handle diabetes and I'm hesitantly tossing my thoughts out there.
Recently I read a post "bashing" restaurants for not having nutrition information. And quite frankly, I don't see what the big deal is. (Gasp!)
Yes! It would be GREAT if every restaurant provided nutritional information, but at the end of the day, we should be able to guess the carbs in food.
And we need to teach our kids to do the same.
Because you can't rely on nutrition information.
Every cook will dish up a different amount of food.
Recipes and portions change!
And what about when you go to a friends house for dinner, or a school party, or a church potluck?
I wouldn't hold my breath for carbs counts.
As parents, it's our job to know the food we allow our children to eat.
At least be able to make a good guess without relying on nutrition information.
And for goodness sakes! Make sure you check BG 2 hours after eating, because odds are you didn't get it just right.
But I bet you'll be closer next time!
