RE: [IPk] DAFNE and fruity free foods...



Strawberries are (from memory) 3g per 100g, so it depends on how many you
eat and what you're doing. Of course, you also have to remember to count for
the chocolate you might dip them in :-)

I agree with Janice that DAFNE is great because of the freedom you get, but
I'm very concerned that they might be dumbing things down, probably because
they think it makes it easier.

The advantage to teaching everyone to count everything is that individuals
can then go away and work out how individual foods affect them and decide
what is and isn't free for them. But if you give a blanket recommendation
like '2 units for ice cream', you're misleading people and making it more
difficult to manage by themselves.
