How to enjoy Christmas with Diabetes?

  • Try to fit in some physical activity over the Christmas period –shopping in the sales, a brisk walk with the grandchildren or dancing at a party all count. See also our keeping active guide.
  • Keep healthy snacks around the house so you have something else to snack on instead of chocolates and mince pies.
  • Try to eat fairly healthily on the days between Christmas and New Years to help prevent the pounds piling on too much.
  • Donate unwanted tins of biscuits and boxes of chocolates to your local hospice or care home.
