Holiday Meal Planning
The holidays are a joyful time of year, filled with parties and other celebratory events. They are a time to be thankful for what we have and to catch up with family and friends. But the focus on food and eating during this season can be very tough, especially for families dealing with diabetes.
Remember that holiday meals and traditions don’t have to disrupt your diabetes control. With a little preparation, you'll be ready to face any holiday head-on and still enjoy it.
