What foods should a person with type 1 diabetes eat/avoid?

People with type 1 diabetes should discuss their individual dietary needs with their doctor. Individualized meal planning is an integral part of every diabetes care plan. The key to every plan is balancing diet, exercise, and insulin intake to achieve blood sugar levels as close to normal as possible. It’s important that anyone new to diabetes develop strategies for eating out and controlling portions, and that they understand how to read and comprehend food labels.

JDRF Kids Online has additional information on healthy eating for kids with T1D and their parents. You also might want to join Juvenation, JDRF’s online community for people touched by diabetes. The site features a Diet and Nutrition group and a Recipe Swap group.

For more information on nutrition and diabetes, the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse has information on eating and diabetes.
