Diabetes Nutritional Placemat
Developed as a learning aid for anyone with diabetes to gain a basic understanding of nutrition and portion sizes for a variety of food types. The placemat uses a simple dinner plate divided into three sections to show recommended portions for meat, starch and vegetables. In addition, the placemat provides information using real-live comparisons for portion sizes, typical calories burned during lifestyle activities, and a “Did you know?” box that provides the “added” calorie values for common sweets like a scoop of ice cream or a chocolate chip cookie.
The backside provides serving sizes for the various food groups including meat, starch, vegetables, fruit, milk, and fat free foods. There is also an 800 number to help you find a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE).
