Diabetic Friendly Easter Basket Ideas for Kids & Adults

As you know, Ashley (A1) was diagnosed with diabetes when she was really young.  While diabetics can have sugar and chocolate, I try not to over-load her Easter basket with those items so that she can more easily enjoy the holiday.  I generally limit the sugary treats to a couple of her favorite brands and then finish the basket out with both food and non-food items.
