Protein and Fiber snacks to fill the gap

Ideas coming from a fellow mom who has a child with Type 1 Diabetes too.  She was given some suggestions about fiber and protein snack options to fill the gaps between meals.  Kind of ironic but some of the items listed were in a telephone conversation I had tonight with a friend.

a pita pocket with hummus/nutella/ peanut butter inside

wheat thin crackers and a couple slices of cheddar cheese

medium orange sprinkled with a littel cinnamon

SF jello cup, pitted sweet cherries, 2 tbs frozen cool whip

Pineapple Sundae-- 4oz pineapple tidbits, 2 tbs vanilla yogurt, 1 tsp roasted sunflower seeds crushed

graham crackers with peanut butter spread on top

town house crackers with chicken or tuna salad spread on them USE LITE MAYO

1 cup of chicken noodle soup and 3 saltines

taco in a bag-- 1 oz bag of Fritos or Doritos crushed in the bag, ADD into bag....lean ground beef, lettuce, tomato chunks, shredded cheese

1 pear and 1oz of cheese

Quesadilla, 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese....can warm up and its a cheese roll-up

1 apple and 2 TBS of Peanut butter

1 mini box of raisins & 2 TBS of dry roasted pumpkin seeds

Bagel Melt- 1/2 whole wheat bagel thin, slice of swiss cheese (or any cheese) and 1 slice of deli turkey breast

3 slices of Melba toast with 1/4 cup ricotta cheese

2 slices whole grain rice thins with nutella or peanut butter

1 cup raw baby carrots and 4 oz. of cottage cheese
