This set of 14 different A4 size meal plates shows a range of common Australian meals. The aim of this pictorial resource is to help people with diabetes improve their carbohydrate estimation at meal times.
The front of each card shows a colour picture of the meal. On the reverse of the card is a picture of the meal highlighting each of the carbohydrate foods, the amount of carbohydrate in each of these foods, and the total carbohydrate in the meal (all in grams of carbohydrate).
The meals pictured are a range of everyday meals, takeaway and restaurant choices.
The plates can be used across all types of diabetes with people who count carbohydrates. Separate activity sheets are included for counting in grams, exchanges, or portions. They can also be used to improve carbohydrate awareness.
