From Athens, Georgia, USA:

My son was diagnosed yesterday. Can he eat Healthy Choice ice cream or Doritos (a brand of snack food)?


Yes, your son can eat everything he ate before he was diagnosed with diabetes. The amounts of foods like ice cream and Doritos and other carbohydrates will need to be measured and included as part of his meal plan. I assume you will be contacting a dietitian who works with children with diabetes. This is an important part of the treatment plan for managing diabetes.
