Apparently he's going to have to starve!

I am running on empty today! We had DS's well check up at the doctor which of course led to the never ending conversations about Hypoglycemia. We discussed Dom's diet and how often he shows symptoms and this led to the surprise. No matter how much we have altered and controlled his diet it is time for the next step. We now have to cut all sugar from his diet not just processed. This will continue at least until we see the pediatric endocrinologist. 


The real sticking point for DS and I was when we went over his schools lunch menu and realized that he can only have the school lunch 9 out of the 22 days of school in April!


This leads me to you guys. Anyone have lunch ideas that contain absolutely no nuts or sugar? He is in a peanut free school.

Rice and veggies with a side of baked boneless chicken? Rice cake or air popped popcorn for a snack

What are you asking? Why cut all sugar if he is hypoglycemic? Hypo means he needs more. Also if he is on a pseudo diabetic diet you may want to think in terms of carbs, not sugar. I'm willing to give suggestions as i have 2 diabetic kids and do meal planning but I'm not sure what the issue is. More or less sugar?

I think the school should be required to provide a meal to a child every day.  Obviously they should know certain children will have different conditions and should be able to accomodate to that.  Hope you can figure things out!

His doctor is cutting all sugar until we see the endocrinologist to save his pancreas. When his body has any sugar his pancreas goes into overdrive producing insulin and then he crashes..

I don't have any experience but my kids love egg salad and tuna sandwiches. I would think that on whole grain bread or tortillas that might be OK.
