Fruit is a great choice for a sweet treat when following a diabetic diet. In this episode of “Diabetes Bites” dietitian, Fiorella DiCarlo, shows you how to prepare your favorite delicious recipes in a way that’s healthy and diabetes-friendly. Today we have a recipe for a great apple snack for kids!
Baked apple chips is a healthy snack alternative, even though there is sugar in fruit, it is fructose. The fructose combined with the fiber in fruit is more slowly digested by the body and is better for your blood sugar than glucose or sucrose, which is table sugar. Fiorella walks you through the process of preparing these crispy snacks, from picking out the right apples to how to slice and bake them. Feel free to make changes and as always share your creations with us on our social media page!
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and for good reason. Apples are extremely rich in antioxidants and dietary fiber, the antioxidants are natures medicine for fighting cancer, diabetes and heart disease. It is very important to incorporate apples and other fruits into your diet, so drop the chips and pick up an apple!
