Sinful Eating Habits that Lead to Diabetes:

...
Irregular Eating Regimen
It should be understood that diabetes is essentially the inability to maintain uniform sugar levels in the body. One common food habit that induces unwanted changes in blood sugar levels is eating at irregular hours. Major meals need to be eaten at around the same time to prevent fluctuations in blood sugar levels. This is vital to ensure that the secretion of insulin is kept in check. Eating heavy desserts post dinner, particularly just before going to bed is essentially a health disaster that could be your stepping stone towards diabetes.

Ignoring Healthier Food Choices
• Tendency to overlook ingredients mentioned on the packaging of food items. Many ingredients lead to an overload of sugar and should be prevented.

• Tendency to snack upon artificially sweetened, packaged foods rather than nutritious, diabetes-controlling options like fruits.

• Over-frying cooked foods that lead to excessive consumption of harmful, trans- fats.

• Dependency on packaged, sweetened fruit juices rather than fresh juices. This leads to unnecessary intake refined sugar.

• Not eating salads regularly. Salads prepare from green veggies and sprouts are a nutritious, anti-diabetic choice. They take a very long time to be fully digested due to the high fiber content. This easy way of regulating sugar levels on a daily basis is often ignored.

• Not drinking sufficient water is perhaps the most common of food choice errors. Sufficient water intake ensures that kidneys are able to function properly and get rid of toxins that make our metabolism sluggish, i.e. more prone to retaining and storing glucose.

Common Diabetes Causing Food Habits:

Skipping Breakfast

Skipping breakfast is akin to pushing yourself towards lifestyle problems like obesity and diabetes. Eating breakfast increases your chances of maintaining uniform sugar levels throughout the day as you are less affected by sugar cravings and hunger pangs.

Diabetes & Protein Overload

Most people seem obsessed about their daily protein intake, many of them overeating high-protein foods. However, merely eating more protein doesn’t make you muscular or healthier. It only leads to weight gain and makes you more vulnerable to health problems like diabetes. Excessive protein is handled by the body in a manner akin to fats or any other energy resource found in excessive amounts.

Emphasis here is to highlight the fact that diabetes is a preventable disease albeit we are ready to get rid of unhealthy food habits. more  

Thanks very much more  
Dr Neelam Nath Ji, I think you are asking about the food for DM_1 affected kid. I have gone through an article on kids health and copying down the relevant info: Kids with diabetes benefit from a healthy diet the same as everyone else. Although kids with diabetes don't have to follow a special diabetes diet, they may need to pay more attention to when they eat and how much is on their plates. They need foods that help them have overall good health, normal growth, and a healthy weight. But kids with diabetes also have to balance their intake of carbohydrates (carbs) with their insulin and activity levels to keep blood sugar levels under control, and they should eat foods that help keep the levels of lipids (fats like cholesterol and triglycerides) in the blood in a healthy range. Doing so can help prevent some of the long-term health problems that diabetes can cause. Kids with diabetes face the same food challenges as everyone else — mainly, sticking with healthy eating habits. more  
EAT HEALTHY NATURAL FRESH FOOD. AVOID PACKED, PACKED DRINKS,COLD STORED FOOD ITEM AND BE VEGETARIAN. HUMAN BODY IS NOT DESIGNED TO EAT, DIGEST AND EXCRETE NON VEG FOOD ITEMS. OUR TEETH ARE NOT DESIGNED FOR EATING MEAT. MEAT EATERS HAVE SMALLER INTESTINES AND EXCRETION OF STOOL WE HAVE MUCH LONGER, AS A RESULT NON VEG ITEMS START DECAYING IN THE BODY AND MAKE THE WHOLE SYSTEM SICK AND UNHEALTHY. MEAT EATERS GENERATE VERY STRONG DIRTY BODY ODORS. THE HAVE TO CONSTANTLY DEODORIZE THE BODY TO MAKE THEM SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE. MEAT EATING ALSO LEADS TO OTHER ILLS LIKE GLOBAL WARMING. TO PRODUCE ONE KG MEAT WE NEED AT LEAST 20 TIMES MORE RESOURCES THAN PRODUCING ONE KG OF VEGETARIAN FOOD. SO PLEASE DO NOT MAKE YOURSELF CREMATION GROUND FOR THE DEAD ANIMALS. more  
Advice for all DIABETEC friends. Eat only and only when sugar levels are within prescribed limits. Eating when sugar levels are already high is like adding fuel to fire. More sugar in body will require more insulin thus fatiguing the pancreas. Liver will try to convert excess sugars into body fat. Insulin resistance results. Thus deepning the diabetic crisis. Obesity will lead to hypertension. The loop continues. Please read about Dr Jason Fung ,a trained nephrologist and his treatment using intermittent fasting to control diabetes. more
