Parties


Rule no. 1 is – have fun!

Your child should be allowed to enjoy the foods offered at the party, including snack foods and birthday cake like other children.

It’s helpful if teachers can inform parents in advance of special parties so they are aware of the cause of a possible rise in their child’s BGLs.

If your child needs to take a plate for a party at school, here’s some great party food ideas which can be enjoyed by everyone:

  • Fairy bread
  • Mini pizzas
  • Potato wedges
  • 
 Pretzels
  • 
 Low joule jelly cups
  • 
 Mini muffins
  • Dips and crackers
  • Popcorn
  • Ribbon sandwiches
  • 
 Diet soft drink
  • 
 Pikelets
  • 
 Fruit kebabs
