Eating Well

Fruit and vegetables displayed together on a table. HEAL-D

When you have diabetes what you eat (and drink) plays a big part in managing your blood sugar. Your weight and shape can also affect your diabetes.

You can still eat all the foods you love but giving your body the right fuel and the right amount of fuel is important to help your blood sugar and to support a healthy body and heart. The HEAL-D programme will give you the tools to help you to do this.

We have to make changes. We can still enjoy our food, enjoy our culture, but we have to make the positive changes for our long-term benefit”
