In June 2013 a close family member was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 19. There had been no diabetes in our family and with no idea what diabetes really was, so the diagnosis was frightening and left us confused and feeling a bit helpless. One of the things we found really annoying was having to work out how to change diet for long term health. Supermarket shopping became a nightmare - reading every food product label, working out carbs and correct percentages, and looking for hidden sugars etc....
During this time we searched high and low for suitable recipes and meals that would help take the stress out of mealtime. There was nothing available and that's how Diabetes Meals Online/The Diabetes Kitchen began in 2014. We have a fantastic team of Dietitians, Diabetes Educators and Food Technologists and our mission is to make meal time easier for people who are managing blood sugar levels for all types of diabetes. Enjoy!
