All fruits and vegetables can fit into a meal plan for diabetes. Starchy vegetables such as potatoes and peas, and fruits may need to be considered for their carbohydrate content. Additionally, some canned fruits that are packed in syrup and sweetened frozen fruits will have more carbohydrate from the sugar. Unsweetened frozen fruits and canned fruits packed in juice or water are usually better choices for a diet for diabetes. The food label will tell you how much there is per serving. I suggest you discuss meal planning for diabetes with a registered dietitian or certified diabetes educator who can help you with food selection to manage your blood sugar.
