Hopefully, his doctor has referred him to a diabetes educator; you need to go to the appointment with him, if you are the one who cooks the meals.
A study was released last year that determined that a low fat vegan diet, based on whole foods, is actually healthier for type 2 diabetics than the traditional ADA diet. You can read about the study here: http://diabetes.webmd.com/news/20081001/vegan-diet-good-type-2-diabetes
