Do any mums have any recipes that are suitable for diabetics? Ones that don’t require stevia or other powdered sugar substitute? Suggestions for main meals or treats would be great!

  • When my mum was diagnosed the nurse told her to attend a few classes that were held by nurses. They handed out some meal plans so maybe ask the nurses at your local medical centre.
