As treats I would suggest: sugar-free jello jigglers (actually concentrated jello cut into cubes that are eaten by hand), most nuts, cheese (hard to do that in the summer though - string cheese?), certain fruit that she knows she can eat maybe with some peanuts, probably salted nuts are good because the players will be sweating. No watermelon as that's really too much sugar. Talk to her parents. They must be able to tell you what she can have, or they must ask her doctor. I wouldn't second guess this. She might be on insulin and she has to be careful of her blood sugar dropping. And participating in sports may have different requirements and cautions than someone who's in class or working in an office.
Doesn't the league have rules about disclosing illness such as insulin-dependent diabetes? They might be liable for damages if something happened to the girl. The parents don't come for the games. If that girl gets in trouble with her sugar level or requires any sort of medical assistance she's all alone and in big trouble.
EMTs aren't psychic and if she is unable to speak, they could do as much harm as good. Your husband should call the parents and inquire- after all she did ask to go and check her sugar levels. Both the girl and her parents need some education. When I was in the classroom, I got more info about two of my diabetic 7th graders and how to take care of them than your husband. Parents supplied me with gels and glucose tabs, told me when and how they were to be used, how to call the Medicalert People. I had a card in my desk with phone numbers etc- every teacher and the front office got them (and I don't teacher phys ed- no 'activity' in my classroom).
PLease follow-up for the sake of that little girl. She needs somebody on her side.
DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE TRIED IT, BUT MY HUSBAND IS DIABETIC, AND HE REALLY LIKES SPLENDA-SWEETENED FOODS....DRINKS, CAKES, CUPCAKES, cookieS, ETC., AND SPLENDA HAS A SITE CHOCK FULL OF RECIPES...ALL FREE...AND BEST OF ALL, THEY TASTE LIKE SUGAR BECAUSE SPLENDA IS SUGAR...JUST THE PART OF SUGAR THAT THE BODY CASTS OFF...NOT THE DAMAGING PART THAT CAUSES DIABETICS PROBLEMS WITH THEIR INSULIN.
JUST TYPE IN www.splenda.com and it takes you to their site for recipes. To our knowledge, there are no side-effects associated with it as with aspartame or saccharin, as it is supposed to be the most extensively tested sweetener on the market (found this out while doing research for hubby).
Here are two quick ones:
TEA/KOOL AID BY THE GALLON: if you and the team are on the move, just take 52 packets of Splenda and add it to a gallon of unsweetened tea...it is really good (even to me and I'm not even diabetic)
STUFFED ANGEL-FOOD: take one angel food cake and cut it into 3 layers (we like to keep it in fridge before slicing)...set aside. Mix all these ingredients (and nothing else!) together: one sugar-free vanilla (or french-vanilla) instant pudding mix, one 20 ounce can crushed pineapple, and one small tub sugar-free, fat-free Kool Whip...mix by mixer and spread between layers (if runny, just chill about 15 min. before spreading between layers) . Keep cold until served...usually keeps out of fridge about 45 to 60 min. without getting too sloppy. We like to give it a punch by adding a few blueberries and some chopped fresh strawberries between layers and 6 or 7 whole strawberries on top with some more fresh blueberries...looks great on July 4th and tastes so good all our friends love it and don't even realize it's sugar-free...usually have to make 2....we use the large size AF cakes with the hole in middle and fill that with the extra filling.
here's one we use as an alternate with sugar: Use chocolate instead of vanilla pudding, two 10 ounce jars marchino cherries with juice (chop in food processor) instead of pineapple, and use the chocolate Kool-whip instead of regular....this is really good too...top with extra cherries.......
Good luck and God bless...you can also get a Splenda/sugar mix......
