Re: [IP] snacks for playing soccer ?

it turns out she ate the 12 carb snack  ( fruit rollup) and bolused for it.
got low anyway.  (72)

this is just a casual game of soccer with a bunch of kids.  she does play
hard at it, though.

so, next time,  she will try the snack and NO bolus. maybe reduce basal from
0.5 to 0.3 for hour or hour and half.
