According to the American Diabetes Association, the prevalence of diabetes among young Americans (children and teens) has been consistently increasing over the past decade. Other than encouraging exercise for 60 minutes a day, many parents should also prepare healthy, but also tasty, meals for their sons and daughters to consume.
