Top Snack Foods for Diabetics

Need a little something to tide you over until dinner? These snacks are ideal for diabetics.

You know that a well-timed snack is essential for managing your diabetes, but what foods can you turn to in these moments? Some choices may do more harm than good. Don't worry – we have you covered. Here's your guide to snacking with diabetes.

Get the right combination.

It doesn't matter if you're munching on a snack or a full meal, there is always a formula to eating with diabetes. You need a mixture of fat, carbs, and proteins to keep your blood sugar in check. If your combo gets lopsided, you won't be feeling your best.

Try one of these pre-approved ideas.

  • Popcorn – Grab a box of plain popcorn at the store, and don't cover it with oil and parmesan cheese.
  • Crackers, fruit, and cheese – Make sure you're getting a truly whole-grain cracker for this snack. Check the list of ingredients rather than relying on potentially deceptive labels on the front of the box.
  • Whole-wheat sandwiches – Include low-fat cheese or lean meats with some dark, leafy greens.
  • Apples and peanut butter – If you don't have a taste for apples, substitute bananas. Both of these fruits go well with the hearty taste of peanuts.
  • Nuts and dried fruits – When mixed together, this combo makes a great on-the-go snack.
  • Yogurt with fruit and granola – Perfect for when you're craving something sweet.
