Letting Kids Be Kids: Life with Type 1 Diabetes


Diabetes Disney Spoonful

Disney Interactive has launched a wonderful new online resource, in collaboration with Lilly Diabetes, to help families let their kids with type 1 diabetes be kids.

The website resides at Disney’s and it is called Life with Type 1 Diabetes. The site contains articles, videos and expert advice for caregivers of children with type 1 diabetes. Other resources, like an info sheet for the babysitter and favorite diabetes tricks and tips from other moms, are also available there. The site will also feature fresh content from knowledgeable contributors such as how to plan for vacations, sleepovers and other activities, as well as give tips for talking to friends, teachers, and coaches about type 1 diabetes.

I invite you to watch this video featuring Krisha, a young woman with type 1 diabetes.
