November is World Diabetes Month and even though nobody in our immediate family suffers from diabetes, my boys do have a history of it in their family and it really makes me think about what they’re eating each day. With so much sugar in the food that we eat, making sure that my boys aren’t getting too much is no easy task! My oldest son especially has a sweet tooth and if I don’t watch him, he will gobble up sugary sweets like mad.
But of course, I still want my kids to enjoy their food, so I have to get creative to make sure it’s appealing. Fruit plates are one of my favourite snack foods to prepare and both boys love them as well! To make the treat extra special without adding tons of sugar, I’ll sometimes serve fresh fruit with real whipped cream sweetened with just a hint of naturally-sourced Stevia sweetener.
