Day 94

I am LOVING Halloween time.... Ok, so its not really Halloween time, but all of the stores think it is!!

A lot of the stores have alternatives to candy, like bags of popcorn, pretzels, chocolate covered pretzels, Pirates Booty, Goldfish and more!

Whats so great about this??

Well, the normal snack pack sizes have twice as many carbs (or more!!) ..these smaller Halloween sized packs have typically 8 carbs per bag..This is wonderful!!

That means madi can go grab a bag and not need insulin..and I dont have to make her only eat half of the bag, or choose to get insulin..

To a lot of people, this may not be a big deal, but we are stocking up on all of these snacks!!

Its perfect for her preschool snack time (no shot for just 8 carbs!!).

  1. I did the same thing last year while my daughter was still on shots. I was so excited to find so many options! I really stocked up! Now I'm buying all the sugar in the snack size bags to keep at school for lows like starbursts and skittles. The pretzels, crackers, etc in that size are still good to keep at school when she needs a little boost.
