We celebrate Raksha Bandhan every year to mark the special bond that we share with our siblings. This is celebrated with absolute joy and grandeur and the delicacies lie at the heart of everyone alike. Therefore, we have curated healthy food options for diabetics, this Raksha Bandhan.
Nothing brings us together like good food. Any Indian festival is incomplete without sweet and savory food. While we like to gorge on our favorite snacks and desserts, it is important that we keep our vitals in check while doing so. Eating in excess can also lead to high blood sugar levels.
We make sure that health and taste both come together while you celebrate any special occasion in your life. We have curated this list of food items that can be consumed by diabetic and non-diabetic people alike.
