Diabetes Self-Management Blog

If your child is being treated at Columbia University Medical Center’s Naomie Berrie Diabetes Center, he or she is invited to the 14th annual day after Halloween candy trade-in party.

Halloween can be challenging for kids with diabetes. To help them enjoy the holiday while keeping their diabetes under control, the health-care professionals at the Berrie Center show their patients how to count carbohydrates in candy and adjust their insulin dosing accordingly. On the day after Halloween, from 4 PM to 6 PM, the children are invited to dress in their costumes and visit the Russ Berrie Medical Science Pavilion, 1152 St. Nicholas Avenue, where they can trade in their excess candy for a toy of their choice. There will also be face painting, games, and a performance by a magician.

Have a happy Halloween!
