Although a healthy diet is key to everyday living with diabetes and long-term health, balanced eating isn't about restricting or excluding food choices.
People with diabetes can often feel daunted at the thought of eating out – at a restaurant or family party. Whether it's a festive holiday, a party or celebration, food is likely to be on the agenda – and having diabetes doesn't mean that you have to miss out. Celebrations, parties and special occasions are times to enjoy foods that may be higher in fat or sugar than your usual choices.
