I like your recipes but your recipes are high in sugar and high in carbs. My granddaughter who is 3 has to have low sugar and low carbs because she has diabetics and Celiac. Please help.

You can do specific searches for recipes here with ingredients for foods she likes and is able to have. There are other places on the Internet that have recipes more specific to special diets too. This site seems to have a little bit of everything. Are you familiar with the advanced search feature here?

Since AR who runs this website doesn't participate on this forum, specific comments/suggestions you have for them can be submitted using the blue link below.

If you could re-post as recipe request we can post recipes for you. You could easily do subs in several of the recipes as well. for regular sugar use splenda which is a 1 to 1 ratio and for the flour there are several types you can sub for it ie rice flour, potato flour etc.

I am not familiar with the advanced search feature. How does that work?

just type in "diabetic recipes" in the search box at the top and it will give you some. I also use, diabetic, another places to check is the diabetic section of you food stores web site. I hope this helps.

PS: I have also used "", this should give you a variety of sites.

Altho I am a big fan of AR, you will probably get more help for your specific situation by checking out resources for diabetics, and specifically, juvenile - or I guess they call it Type I now - diabetes. My grandson was diagnosed when he was seven. The overwhelming amount of info out there is for Type II and although the carb-counting might be the same, the young person and the (typically) older person are not.

I know I'm preaching so forgive me. But if you have an opportunity to participate in any of the diabetic education opportunities on behalf of your granddaughter, that would be great. The only reason I say this is because I see a lot of comments and feedback on AR from those who think diabetics only need to avoid sugar and don't really understand how to count carbs overall. Obviously this is not the case with the commenters here. But, I have one grandson who is diabetic and one who is allergic to nuts... so food looks a lot different than it used to!

Regarding using "advanced search". It depends a little on which version of AR you are currently being given. If you have the old version: at the top of the page you see a rectangular window that has the word "search" at the right end. Under that window, you should see "ingredient/nutrition facts/more". OK? Click on "more" and a new window should open with places for you to type in ingredients you want and do not want in your recipe search. As you use it more, you will learn how to ask it specifically so you can get what you want. For instance, I used to ask for "hamburger" and have found that it wants "ground beef". It is very specific as to spelling. If you misspell, it will not find what you are looking for. You can get to this same window in the new version of AR by clicking on the "search" icon twice. Good luck and come back here to the Buzz with more questions! You will always find someone who can help (hopefully).
