11 Best Snacks to Eat If You Have Diabetes

9. A small apple with peanut butter

Yes, this childhood favourite is diabetes-approved. Apples are high in fibre (just keep the skin on), low in calories, and rich in flavonoids that may be protective against diabetes.

Peanut butter offers some protein and healthy fat, but cap your serving to one tablespoon if you’re aiming for a lower-calorie snack.

11. String cheese

String cheese is the perfectly portioned protein. I tell my clients 1 to 2 is fine, depending on how hungry you are.

Eat alone if it has been less than 2 to 3 hours since your last meal or with a serving of carbs if it has been longer than that.
