Hello & welcome to Healthy Happy Kidz! We hope to bring you tasty and easy-to-make recipe ideas for your Type 1 child that the whole family will like. Let's face it, diabetic cooking doesn't need to mean that you have to skimp - it just means eating smart. And I hope that Happy Healthy Kidz will help you to.
We want this web site to be yours too. Please make comments, like what worked and might not have; ask questions; add recipes for me/us to try; or just have your voice heard! After all, we're all in this together and have much to learn from one another. Please contact us -- we'd love to hear from you!
We do want to say up front that we are not CDEs, nutritionists, or even chefs by trade. Rather, our expertise comes from having a child with diabetes and day-by-day figuring out what this kid will eat (and like) that makes sense of a diabetic diet. To boot, we also are looking for foods and recipes that our whole families will like.
There are many others like us out there who are in the trenches every day cooking for a child living with diabetes. We want to share what's work for us with you ... and we hope that you will likewise share what's worked for you with all of us.
Until next week, we remain yours in health, happiness, and good recipes,
Melissa Arnold & Beth McNamara
