Filling teenagers up

Teenagers, particularly teenage boys, seem to eat extremely large amounts of food.

These changes in appetite are normal during growth spurts and need to be discussed with the diabetes team so that insulin dose is matched with food intake.

To ensure that your teenager is growing up but not out, it’s also important to encourage healthy ‘filling’ food choices based on wholegrain breads, cereals, fruit, vegetables and low fat dairy foods.
