Diabetic Diva Susan with her latest recipe book.
I asked our friend Susan http://www.diabetic-diva.com/
also known as Diabetic Diva whether she had some recipes that children could cook with their grown up.
Diabetic recipes are ‘Healthy’ because they have limited amounts of refined sugars and salts so if you want more healthy recipes take a look at her website.
Remember you don’t have to be diabetic to enjoy Susan’s tasty recipes, in fact eating these healthy feasts can help prevent you becoming diabetic so tuck in!

Have you spent the summer nurturing and tending your runners? Well now is the time to get harvesting! But remember to send us a picture of your longest runner bean for our giant bean competition.
Is there a bean long enough for the Giant Bean Competition?
Runner Beans give your plate brilliant colour and taste great! Try them boiled with your roast dinners; stir-fried in oil with garlic, peppers, beansprouts and chicken; or in a warm new potato and mackerel salad.
I was picking my runner beans a couple of weeks ago when I noticed a lovely long straight bean.
Gently I tied a little bit of string loosely round the stalk and told everyone not to pick it yet.
My longest runner bean so far
A few days later I thought it looked fully grown so I snapped it off and brought it up the house to measure it.
It was over 31cm!
