    was diagnosed at the age of nine up until a few months ago these tiny juice boxes for tiny people and for me could be found tucked in my school bags purses and panniers shoved in the middle console of my parents and my own car and stacked neatly on my pantry shelves Each Junior Juice contained 15g of carbohydrate and each box came illustrated with friendly looking critters usually rabbits or frogs wearing formal turn of the century clothing and picnicking in the great outdoors But one day standing helplessly in the juice aisle I couldn t find my beloved rabbits or frogs I scanned the colourful rows of juice boxes and there were no Junior Juices to be found I asked the teenager restocking the shelves if he knew when they would be coming in and was met with a blank stare and a mumbled Mmmdunno Uh oh I thought Does this mean curtains for my frog and rabbit friends and for my properly portioned low blood sugar treatments The answer happily was no I did some research and discovered that McCain Foods Canada sold its ready to drink beverage business to A Lassonde Inc who I was pleased to learn did not exterminate my frog and rabbit friends Despite this happy news Junior Juices are still nowhere to be found on my grocery store shelves But I have found an alternative A new portable portion controlled serving of juice Until my Junior Juice returns it seems that I m going to be shopping in the baby food aisle This entry was posted in Blood Sugar Lows and Highs and tagged juice low blood sugar treatment Bookmark the permalink Let Them Eat Bread Bring on the Measuring Cup 4 Responses to Portion Controlled Pingback Twitted by diabetesblogs Nadine
