Health Tip: Snacking Healthier With Diabetes

(HealthDay News) -- Just because you have diabetes doesn't mean you can't enjoy a healthier snack once in a while.

The American Diabetes Association suggests:

  • Snack on whole grains, fruits and vegetables. These provide energy and help you feel fuller.
  • Watch portion sizes. Use measuring cups and spoons.
  • When you snack, don't forget to include the carb count in your daily total.
  • Avoid snacking mindlessly while you're doing something else, such as driving or watching TV.
