Between-meal snacks

People with diabetes on certain types of tablets or insulin may require one snack between each meal and for supper. However, most people managing their weight are advised not to have snacks between meals. For specific advice, discuss this with your doctor, dietitian or diabetes educator.

There are lots of healthy choices that can be used as snack foods. Select portions of fruit that are in season (e.g. an apple, a banana, a peach, a pear, three apricots, half a cup of grapes, and a cup of strawberries or a slice of rockmelon or watermelon).
