Toddler snacks

My 2 Yr. old grandson is newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetic after his blood sugar went over 600. I am looking for lo-carb snacks/recipes for a very picky eater who needs them to prevent  low sugar..especially at night.   It will be 2 or 3 weeks before we can see anyone for help.  Any suggestions?

Snacks in general and snacks to prevent low bloodsugar might be a bit different. In general good snacks would be things like cheese, cold cuts, nuts, peanut butter (on celery, or just by spoon) vegies of any kind which have little or no carbs. If you are concerned about his blood sugar going low at night you might want to have something that does have some carbs such as peanut butter and (sugar free) jam on crackers and some milk. When his basal dose is set correctly, though (his longacting insulin) he should not go low overnight. There's a lot to figure out at first and a lot of it is trial and error. It will get easier, I promise!
