Most of us would always have yoghurt in the fridge so this is a good fall-back snack. It’s high in calcium but be sure to choose a low fat, low-sugar or natural version. You could even halve the amount and add a small handful of fresh or frozen berries for a change.


100g low fat yoghurt

    I love this website! I was recently diagnosed with gestational diabetes and referred by my certified nurse-midwife to a dietician. My health insurance refuses to pay for a dietician, stating (and I QUOTE) “Gestational diabetes can be successfully treated by reading a book.” While my CNM fights to get me under the care of a dietician, I am so happy and relieved to find a starting point to manage this condition. Thank you!
