Diabetes Carb Counting
Sarah Cohen and Emma Isaacs
15,000 children are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes each year. There is nothing to prevent this and it is a lifetime of responsibility. From daily injections, monitoring glucose levels, and maintaining a healthy diet, there are many skills kids need to learn. Carb counting involves tracking the amount of carbohydrates in food eaten per day. The amount of carbs eaten per meal impacts kid's blood sugar levels and the amount of insulin they need to receive. Our goal is to create a product that teaches kids how to count carbs quickly, effectively, and independently.
