The foods that make up a healthy diet for most people are the same foods that people managing with diabetes should choose. That includes choosing a diet rich in colorful fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are carbohydrates, and carbohydrates will impact blood sugar levels more so than protein or fat. So, an important dietary consideration for all people managing with diabetes is to eat at regular times and control the amount of carbohydrate eaten at each meal and snack. If carbohydrate intake is monitored and spread out evenly throughout the day, most any food—including delicious fruits—can be included. You can get more information about diabetes from the American Diabetes Association’s website (www.diabetes.org).
