The Ultimate List of Snacks for Gestational Diabetes

Finding out you have gestational diabetes can feel a little jarring at first. There's a lot to learn about new guidelines, but once you get in the hang of it, figuring out meals can be totally manageable. Snacks can feel a little trickier, but there are lots of good options out there for snacks that won't spike your blood sugar!
