We've got a meal plan (from the hospital dietician) for our 8-year old, which I was trying to meticulously follow for the first few week. Good luck. Since our ped endo put William on Lantus 1x/day and Humalog 4x/day, I feel like we've got more flixibility in his feeding. But, how much flexibility? How much do we need to control overall carbs per day? If he's getting enough insulin to cover all his carbs in any particular meal, how important is it to limit his carbs overall? As long as he's maintaining a "healthy" weight, and getting a fairly balanced diet (not that he is...but that's another issue) is there any particular concern with sticking to the plan?
