Exeter and Young Person’s Paediatric Diabetes service developed two structured education programmes, Cook and Eat Family Fun (pre-school and primary age) and Cook and Eat Fun! (secondary age) to actively learn carbohydrate counting skills in a real-life setting. The learning outcomes are age appropriate and achievable for young people and young people are invited to annual sessions to build up their knowledge and understanding. Sessions are funded by schools, supermarket donations and grants from charitable trusts.
