Our son was dignosed with type 1 diabetes two weeks ago, he is only 19 months old. Does anyone have any suggestions on finding some information on meal planning?

I am not sure where you live but most places in the US have free diabetes educators and you can go see them. They have dieticians there also. That would be my first suggestion they have a lot of up to date material and are very well trained. You can also call your sons endocrinologist. Good luck!
