This set of 120 flash cards are designed to help Dietitians to teach carbohydrate counting to people with type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes who count their carbohydrate foods in exchanges (15 grams of carbohydrate).
There are 81 different carbohydrate foods, with each card visually showing a 1 exchange portion of the food. The pack contains multiples of common carbohydrate foods (like bread, rice, pasta etc.), and also some non-carbohydrate foods to allow people to visually build a whole meal. The majority of foods included are core foods, however some treat foods are included.
They can be used in group or individual education sessions in a variety of ways – such as general carb awareness, sorting by carbohydrate quality, or to apply carb exchanges to building a meal or even daily meal planning.
