Diabetes Mom Approved

This past summer we had a great experience with The Great Escape in Lake George New York. They were friendly and so accommodating to the needs of our daughter and her diabetes. Having this park recognize the needs of our daughter made her summer one of the best! Since we had season passes we loved going here because we knew that Nikki would be able to really enjoy the park and when diabetes issues came knocking on our door this park stepped up to the plate to help and ensure that Nikki was taken care of and had a good time.

I posted recently on my facebook how "Diabetes Friendly" this park was and also mentioned a place that was not so "Diabetes Friendly". There were so many responses from people also telling about places and restaurants that they have found very helpful to them that it got me thinking. Wouldn't it be great to have a place where we can share this information, other mom's and caregivers sharing information on where the place to be is. After all if there are places out there that give great service, have carbs on menus and other things wouldn't you want to know about it?

So we have created a "Diabetes Mom Approved" Fan Page on Facebook. We have formed a committee of mom's that will be coming up with a mission statement and guidelines so that we can share and spread the word about places that are "Diabetes Friendly".

Be sure to check it out and list what you have found we will be reviewing all posts as we develop this page to bring you the places that are "Diabetes Friendly".

Join us at "Diabetes Mom Approved"
