Most fruits are fine! I am a type 1 diabetic and my dietitian/nutritionist recommended that I eat an exchange (15 grams of carbohydrates) as a part of every meal! The key is getting the portions right!1 exchange of:apple = 4 ounces*apricot (fresh) = 5 1/2 ouncesbanana = 4 ounces*blackberries = 3/4 cupblueberries = 3/4 cupcantaloupe = 11 ouncescherries (fresh) = 3 ouncesdried fruit = 2 tablespoonsgrapefruit = 11 ouncesgrapes = 3 ounceshoneydew melon = 10 ounces*kiwi = 3 1/2 ouncesmango = 5 1/2 ouncesnectarine = 5 ounces*orange = 6 1/2 ouncespapaya = 8 ouncespeaches (fresh) = 1/2 cuppears (fresh) = 4 ouncespineapple (fresh) = 3/4 cupplum (fresh) = 5 ounces*raspberries = 1 cup*strawberries = 1 1/4 cup whole berries*tangerine = 8 ounceswatermelon = 13 1/2 ounces*has more than 3 grams of dietary fiber per servingFruits are considered a carb! There are carbs (starches, milks, and fruits), protiens (meat and meat subsitutes, such as eggs, cheese, and tofu), and fats! A food in the carb group has 15g of carbohydrates per exchange! A food in the protien group has 7g of protien per exchange! And a fat has 5g of fat per exchange! If your mom would like to eat fruit then she should replace one of her other carbs (a starch or a milk) with the fruit!
