I think children need a varied diet that consists of good food and not predominantly snacks or fast food.
Yeah the higher my blood sugar the more insulin resistant I become. It takes twice as much insulin, and twice the time to bring a high blood sugar.

That's the crux of the issue and it deserves all the emphasis we can give it . . . remember JERF. Just eat real food!

I like the term JERF

It was like something I read today

Stop Eating CRAP

Carbonated drinks
Refined sugar
Artificial food
Processed food

Funny how they use the term "refined" as if the stuff was somehow improved. And make it so un-nourishing even the bugs won't eat it-hence "preserved." Who wants fake food?

In regard to 'fake food' - last Summer I had a craving for fast food french fries. So I went to McD's and ordered myself a small order, went home to eat them. The first two or three tasted good (if you can call them that) and then something changed. It was suddenly not very tasty, so I threw the rest of them on the lawn for the birds and wild critters. Next day all of the fries were still there. They stayed there until we mowed the grass and my husband got tired of looking at them, so he raked them up and threw them in the trash pickup container. Needless to say that says something if wild critters won't eat them, I should never have been dumb enough to try them either. Whatever was I thinking?

My dog would have eaten them.

(I hear you, though.)

LOL...

Years before my diagnosis, I got a new dog. Went through the donut drive-thru, and was eating my donut while the dog was begging me for a piece. I heard myself saying, "No, you can't eat this. This is not GOOD for you!"

To the dog.

Not to myself.

Kind of made me re-evaluate my breakfast choice for a few days.
