sugarfree candyWhether it’s a beloved a niece or nephew, cousin, stepson or stepdaughter, foster son or foster daughter, grandson or granddaughter, great-grandson or great-granddaughter, when you first hear about their diabetes diagnosis, it’s very tempting to give them a lot of treats like sugarless candy to “make up for it.”

Your ¬†heart is in the right place, but this would be a mistake. Instead, ask parents privately what treats or gifts they’ll allow, or even better, find out what healthy snacks like dried fruit might be welcome.

Of course, greeting cards will always be welcome. ūüėČ

Remember, the best gift you can give a child is a hug!
