Whether frozen or fresh, fruits are packed with nutrients and can also satisfy the sweet cravings. It is best to avoid canned fruit or opt for the one which doesn’t contain added sugar.

Fresh fruit: :

Fresh fruit: As advised by home care experts at Home Care Assistance, the diabetic friendly diet contains 3-4 portions of fruits daily. It is important for you to include these 4 portions of fruit in your senior loved one’s diet plan. These fruits can be consumed in the original form or they can also be used in smoothies and low-fat milkshakes. Here is a list of some fruits and why they are so effective for diabetes.
