visual help for type 2 diabetic..

rmarisco | Jul 23, 2013 10:20 AM

my MIL is a type 2 diabetic. has been for YEARS. However, with her advancing age, she seems to be confusing her good foods and bad foods, and is allowing more bad foods to slip into her diet. i am looking for something like a "food pyramid" for diabetics she could hang on her fridge, or a simple (chldlike) book that is highly visual. (her doctor gave her a handout, but it's densely populated with sentences, and no pictures of "good" foods) She seems to believe that she will be missing out on food if she eats according to her diabetes: i'd like to be able to SHOW her the variety available beyond bread and pancakes. Is there anything simple and visual available out there? Thanks!
