5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource book, 19 May 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carbs and Cals: A Visual Guide to Carbohydrate and Calorie Counting for People with Diabetes (Paperback)
I have to agree with the other reviewers here.
Before my son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (aged 2) I had never worried about carb counting, so this book is incredibly useful. It has clear concise information and is well laid out. I use the collins carb counter book for anything that is not included here (though there isn't much that isn't). This book has become a very useful tool and I often to take it to playgroup as it helps take the guesswork out of what size portion he has had while there. I'm planning to get another copy for when he starts Nurery, or I might get the flashcards. There is also a phone app version.

BRILLIANT

UPDATED AUG 2011
Just a note, I have bought the new edition and though the same foods have been used, some of the carb (and Cal) values have been changed. Some are a little lower, some a litle higher. Some by only 1g of carb some by as much as 4g. Overall I don't expect this to make a huge difference to his carb intake and the old edition is still handy to have. I mention it as you may wish to give thought to updating your copy.

PS The poster set produced by Carbs and Cals are huge, you would need to have a lot of wall space to display. Better suited to an office or clinic than say a small nursery classroom. It does have a handy 10g snack comparison (which is what I was after) Publishers take note , that info on a handy flyer would be great.
