Diabetes: Kid-Sized.




The portable carbohydrate choices that amount to 15 grams are often the stuff designed for the wee ones: the juiceboxes, the applesauce in a squeezy packet (seriously, have you tried that stuff?), the Cheerios in a Ziploc bag. The little fruit snack pouches. Two clementine oranges. (I am currently addicted to those.)

Why does diabetes, by the evidence we carry around, have to make even us adults appear to be small children?

  1. I'm a HUGE fan of Apple & Eve "Elmo's Punc"h juice boxes, but the Apple & Eve "Burt & Ernie's Berry" juicebox variety is a close second!

  2. Have you tried to the GoGo Squeeze apple sauce. It's quite yummy and you can buy it in bulk at Costco. :)

  4. I'm always the mom sucking down a Capri Sun in the preschool pick up line before her kid comes out and catches her...while the other parents stand their with their travel mugs of coffee.

  6. I LOVE THOSE POUCH THINGS. We buy the Ella's Kitchen pouches for BirdZone, and I use them all the time for snacks. So does Chris. We're addicted to the stuff.

  7. I use the same juicy juice patches! The worst is walking the high school hallways sipping spongebob endorsed fruit squeezers. Major embarassment but sooooo good for treating those inopportune lows!

  9. Those pouch things are SO AWESOME!!! We get the little applesauce ones with the funny face on them, and of course I go with the little juiceboxes to go right along with them! And sometimes, when I'm really good, I get a little cracker pack in my lunch!! :) Dude, it's like second grade bliss again... thanks for the fun post, Kim!

  10. i prefer to think of myself as a giant while using kid-size stuff. especially the tiny tabasco sauce bottles you get with room service.

  11. I love the applesauce pouches! :) They are so fun (and a nice change from juice all the time). As for juice, Apple & Eve Big Bird apple juice is my fav. Though I like the orange juicy juice (when I can find it).
