I can sympathize with you on the breakfast foods. Have you tried turkey sausages? Maybe you just need to find the right kind of sausage that she’ll eat. Elisabeth loves pancakes & waffles also, but I try to get the frozen so I can better count the carbs (15 for pancakes) 13 for waffles. I also use the sugar-free syrup which she likes better than the regular syrup (we use Carey’s). Re: the eggs…one daughter will only eat eggs with shredded ham…maybe you could try mixing in different things, or making them in a different form? Elisabeth likes scrambled and “flat eggs” her word for over hard.
I’ve found that when Elisabeth is high, she usually doesn’t want to eat, like you mentioned when your daughter was 333 at snacktime. Other ideas: honey nut cheerios with skim milk? Yogurt with toast on the side? toast with peanut butter, or banana with peanut butter. We’ve found the protein with carbs really helps as another mom mentioned.
We recently got the Diabetic Forecast and my husband really enjoyed reading it and said he felt he learned from it. Is there something like the above that your husband could read and learn from a little at a time?
Hope this helps. Know that you’re not alone and that there are many others who are feeling their way through similar issues as your family.
