What to Eat with Diabetes: Best Sweet Diabetic Snacks

By Jessie Shafer and Jane Burnett, RD, LD
We’ve got your best picks for sweet snacks right here! These sweet diabetic snacks received the nutrition check mark from dietitians and taste approval from people like you. We conducted blind taste panels with more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, and awarded the top-rated brownies, cookies, bars, and graham snacks our Diabetic Living What to Eat seal of approval.

Best Sweet Snacks for Diabetes

To snack or not to snack? That is the big question for many people with diabetes.

With current oral diabetes medications, snacking is not necessary to avoid blood sugar lows. But in some cases, snacks can be helpful for weight control. The key is to avoid high-calorie choices like potato chips or candy. Instead reach for a better snack, such as one of these sweet options.

We snacked our way through 70 bars, cookies, and crisps that met our health guidelines. Then we asked more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, to taste and pick their favorites. And here they are: The top six snacks to receive the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval.
