The program works for adults so it should work well with kids, too.
There are a few threads about Cooking for Kids, for meals that are kid-friendly, plan-approved snacks, etc. so take a look around. There are a number of moms feeding kids the McDougall way.
BTW, insist the doctor do a repeat lab to make sure it wasn't a fluke or lab error. Nobody of ANY age should be given a diagnosis of diabetes or pre-diabetes based on just one lab result, no matter what the number is. Just feed her these great McDougall foods between now and her next appointment and I'm sure she'll get great numbers the next time.
Thanks for the tips and the encouraging words. I will be exploring the Cooking for Kids threads for sure, and she enjoys cooking, so we'll be choosing recipes out of the Starch Solution and the Herbivore cookbooks and going to town with them!
By the way, I did get a call back from her doctor's office. Her fasting glucose was 94, and her hemoglobin A1c was 6.0. From what I can tell, her fasting glucose level puts her on the very high side of normal, while her hemoglobin A1c is smack in the prediabetic range. Better to get a wake-up call now than after things got worse. I'm hanging on to Dr. McDougall's words in the Starch Solution where he emphasizes the body's amazing ability to heal itself when you give it what it needs. We intend to do that. Now to go get my daughter from school and talk to her about all this.
