Diet management is a challenging and important aspect in the management of diabetes (both type 1 and 2). Type 1 diabetes can affect children unlike type 2 diabetes which is seen mostly in adults. In children proper diet management is important as they need the proper amount of calories to maintain a healthy body weight and their growth. You have to realize that there is no "diabetes diet," per se. The foods which are considered good for people with diabetes---is good for everyone. So even if you or your child has type 1 diabetes the whole family can eat the same healthy foods. But you have to be careful about the total amounts of carbohydrate, sweets and calorie intake.
