Diabetes Snack Carb Amounts

Below is a useful foundation guide to the amount of carbs in the foods you are eating. You can work from this Map or create your own personal one based on the snacks you eat.

This figure may of course be too much or too little for you - so you will need to discover your own ideal amount
