RE: [IPk] DAFNE courses in the UK: free foods?

Our dietician has diabetes and does an awful lot of guessing so this
doesn't surprise me but is so wrong when this information will affect
people.  You did well to bite your lip; I am getting better at it.

Subject: [IPk] DAFNE courses in the UK: free foods?

On DAFNE courses in the UK, do they teach you there are free foods? 

I ask because yesterday when I was at a hospital (teaching a training
for something unrelated to diabetes), I overheard part of a DAFNE
discussion. The dieticians were advising the person that cherries were a
free food. I shook my head but bit my tongue. (Cherries are 11.5g carb
100g weight, or 16g per 100g weight, depending on what resource you
I just wonder where the dieticians got their info!)
