If you've been following my blog, you know that we've been having trouble with breakfast spikes and lunch crashes. Sometimes it's due to a spike over 200 and sometimes it's not. He was 150 one hour after breakfast this past week and still crashed to 53 at lunch.
I'm stumped, the doctors are stumped, we're all stumped!
This whole next week, they want him to eat the same exact breakfast every day and see what happens.
On the menu:
1 cup Rice Chex
1-1/2 cups Milk
1 slice of turkey bacon
1 cheese stick
Their opinion is that adding a little protein and a little fat might help slow the absorption. We'll see...... Honestly, I don't feel very confident. I hope I'm wrong!
My next dilemma is how to handle breakfast once we go back to school full time. He's been eating breakfast at 9 and lunch between 12-12:30. For school, I'd like to switch him to eating breakfast at 8 and lunch around noon. If he continues to crash, that's going to put a big road block in the day. I don't want to have to treat low's each day before lunchtime rolls around. He'll be one cranky little bear!
Question: How do you all adjust for the new school times?
