I'm not sure if this is where I put this but my 9 year old daughter just found out her little friend has type 1 diabetes. The friend is supposed to spend the night with us on Saturday and I want to be sure to have the right foods and snacks for her as well as something for dinner that would be better for her condition. Any suggestions or advice would be wonderful. Thank you.

I think it would be good to talk with her parents to get some ideas. Carbs are what you really need to control, they'll probably have some suggestions for you. You should also ask what medicaitons she might be taking or if she'll need her blood sugar checked or insulin injections.

Here are some ideas for you: http://www.ivillage.com/snack-suggestions-preschool-children-diabetes/4-y-99785

I hope they have fun with the sleepover :)
