Some do and some do not know that Quin is involved in the Teddy Study at the UC Denver. When he was born this study tested his blood and found the diabetes antibodies. Its a great study that is looking for environmental determinants that might be causing Type 1 diabetes. I'm glad to say that nothing has changed from his testing and he has no signs of diabetes so far. Here is a great kid snack recipe from their newsletter. Of course, Quin won't be able to have any until he is a year due to the honey.
Teddy Bear Snack Mix
2 Cups Honey Nut Cheerios
2 Cups Teddy Bear shaped graham snacks
1 Cup honey-roasted peanuts
½ Cup raisins
Mix all ingredients and store in an airtight container.
Safety Note: Children should be seated and supervised when eating.
