Often birthday parties are centered around food. For parents of children with type 1 diabetes this can pose significant planning issues. The question we ask ourselves, when's the best time to celebrate and have food?
In the past we've had JoJo and Nick's birthday party after school, right around afternoon snack time and before dinner. The party guests came home with the kids on the school bus. Once they arrive we served cake or cupcakes and the rest of the time was spent celebrating their birthday. Everyone was picked up before dinner.
