Catering for people with diabetes

The information on this page is intended to illustrate how you can best cater for people with diabetes, whether they are coming for dinner, or to stay for a few days. The information is about people with diabetes in general but it is important to remember that everyone with diabetes has individual dietary requirements and treatment plan – and some people may like to stray a little from their usual eating habits when away from home.

Just like everyone else, the occasional high fat or high sugar food can be included as part of a healthy diet. It may therefore be an idea to have a chat with the person with diabetes before they come, to see if they have any specific needs, or to discuss the meal(s) you have planned.
