Diabetes Ireland recently worked with Safefood Ireland to develop our online cookbook. All recipes are suitable for those who are living with diabetes and pre-diabetes.
You will find that some of these recipes include sugar and that the traffic light system indicates red, as the recipe may be high in sugars but this does not mean that they can’t be included as part of a balanced diet.
Small amounts of sugar are fine, particularly if they are combined with foods that are high in fibre. Desserts, biscuits and confectionery are not forbidden but because these are also usually high in calories, fat and sugar, you should only have these occasionally.
Check out the food and diabetes section on the website for more information and background to healthy eating for diabetes.
