Is this the proper group to post ??? about diabetes? I have a friend who is

insulin diabetic and his wife tells me he is not consistent with his care. He is going to help me with something around the house and I want to feed him, too. Any suggestions on what is something quick and healthy I can offer him for lunch? How about snacking while working, as the work is outside? How often for snacks???

Thanks in advance.

They were terrible about their diets--"If I want to have donuts, I'll just take more insulin." And they certainly paid for it.

I'd offer him a sandwich, and sugarless beverage. I'm trying to remember if my sisters ever ate any healthy snacks, and what they may have been. Should be plenty of info on Google.
