Announced earlier this month on the Disney Interactive Blog, Disney Interactive and Lilly Diabetes launched a new online destination dedicated to families affected by type 1 diabetes on Disney’s family lifestyle site, Spoonful.com at http://spoonful.com/type1. Leveraging Lilly’s expert knowledge about diabetes and Disney Interactive’s trusted portfolio of parenting tools and community, the site serves as a unique and powerful resource for parents and caregivers raising children with type 1 diabetes.
Through a mix of articles, videos and advice, site contributors (which include dietitians, psychologists, nurses and everyday families) cover a variety of topics all designed to help families manage type 1 diabetes in everyday situations, such as:
- Routines for families that manage type 1 diabetes while still letting kids be kids
- Important info on how to pack for vacations, sleepovers and other outings
- Talking tips about type 1 diabetes to share with friends, teachers and coaches
