Diabetes Snacks: This or That?

Landmark dietitians share healthy snack options for those with diabetes.

This is an excerpt from the Winter/Spring 2021 Patient Newsletter. Download the full newsletter below.


An apple? Or, an apple with peanut butter?

An apple with peanut butter! This delicious combo offers healthy fat and protein from the peanut butter, and carbs from the apple. The pairing of the two helps to give you a boost of energy without spiking your blood sugar.


Berries? Or, yogurt with berries?

Yogurt with berries! Berries are high in antioxidants but low in calories, so they won’t keep you full for long. Adding yogurt to your berries adds probiotics and protein. This helps control blood sugar levels, and keeps you feeling full longer.


Crackers? Or, cheese and crackers?

Cheese and crackers! Whole grain crackers provide fiber, while the cheese provides protein and fat. Pairing crackers with cheese slows the digestion of carbs and keeps your blood sugar more balanced.
