It’s a commonly held misconception that diabetics need to buy special “diabetic” food products and should avoid eating any sweet foods like cake and chocolate.

While it’s sensible to keep these empty calories for the occasional treat, no foods are actually banned. Yes – you can have your cake and eat it!
