FOOD

REPORT

use to look up foods and assess intake of

carbs, calories and other nutrients.

• The flashcards are intended as a

teaching tool and memory aid, so that

people grasp important information about

popular food items. One side of the card

shows a large photo of a common food

(such as pasta), and turning the card

over reveals the nutritional values for that

portion.

We now have three distinct packs of

flashcards:

• PACK 1: A range of foods containing

carbohydrates.

• PACK 2: A mixture of carb and noncarb foods,

such as meat, fish, eggs and

cheese.

• PACK 3: We recently launched a

World Foods pack containing a selection

of African, Arabic, Caribbean and South

Asian foods to accompany our World

Foods book.

The flashcards are extremely popular

with healthcare professionals and parents

of children with diabetes. As well as being

used nationally on many type 1 education

courses, they are also used in type 2

courses such as DESMOND. Many

people with diabetes and their families

also use the flashcards to help with their

own self-education at home.

In my own experience, I often do a

higher / lower game, where people work

in pairs and estimate the carbs in the

food shown on a flashcard. They then

look at the next card and decide if the

carbs are higher or lower, and have a go

at estimating the amount. A simple but

engaging game.
