No carb snacks for child

HowlingWolf | Aug 5, 2014 12:21 PM

Looking for some no carb or super low carb snack ideas for my 5 1/2 year old. My daughter was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and we are running out of affordable snack ideas. So far we have been sticking to:
Cheese sticks
pork rinds
Sugar free jello
Vienna sausages

Does anyone know if I can get no carb/low carb fruit snacks, granola bars, pop tarts, ice cream or other child friendly snack ideas? Before she was diagnosed she was big into fruits for snacks, but now since most fruits have so many carbs those are reserved for meal times. Our whole "healthy eating" vibe has gone out the window as she wants to have snacks without having to get a shot every single time!
