Snacking for exercise:

In our ‘Ask the Dietician’ feature in issue 4 of Sweet Life magazine (check it out here if you haven’t read it yet!) we asked dietician Genevieve Jardine for tips on how diabetics can snack well.

Here’s what she has to say about snacking for exercise when you have diabetes:

“Remember that exercise can also cause low blood glucose. It is important to check blood glucose before and after you exercise. People react differently to exercise depending on the type, duration and intensity: some people see a rapid drop and others an increase in blood sugar levels, so it is important to test and see what your individual response is.

As always, you should see a dietician to help you plan suitable snacks for different situations. Fresh snack ideas can bring a sense of fun into your daily eating plan.”
