Looking for some advice. My son is having a friend sleep over this weekend, and the friend is diabetic. What are some diabetic friendly, yet kid friendly foods I can have here for them to eat? Specifically dessert for Friday evening and breakfast Saturday morning?
Any advice would be helpful! Thanks.

Hey there!
Came across your post and wanted to share my ideas for you. For dessert, I know I have seen ice cream that says "no sugar added" while shopping in the freezer aisle so that's definitely something yummy that kids would enjoy eating. Also, I have seen various types of ice pops and fudge bars that say "no sugar added" as well as some "low-carb" options, so that would be something to look for! For breakfast, I personally know a diabetic child who on the weekends gets to eat french toast made with low-carb bread and it's something she looks forward to all week! But you do have to be careful with what syrup you put on the table. I recommend trying to find a "light" or " no sugar added" syrup, which I know they have at almost any grocery store, I have found it at Giant in the past.
Those are my suggestions for you, hope the sleepover goes well!

You rock! We had ice cream sundaes Friday night for dessert and I found low carb bread and no sugar added syrup at Wegmans so I made the french toast.... the kids really enjoyed it. Thanks Joanna!
