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 BGL’s.

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

  • Mini homemade pizzas
  • Potato wedges or oven fries
  • Sushi rolls
  • Pretzels
  • Diet jelly cups
  • Mini fruit muffins
  • Crackers, vegetable sticks and dip
  • Popcorn
  • Diet soft drink
  • Wholemeal pikelets
  • Fruit kebabs
