Transition in the Kitchen


Diabetes Hope Foundation is excited to launch our new Transition in the Kitchen Recipe Guide and Webinar series to help youth-in-transition and their families learn how to manage their diabetes through healthy cooking and nutrition.

Our new initiative will kick off with our recipe guide launch, featuring 45 recipes from our Scholarship alumni and nutritional tips and reviews from a registered dietician. DHF will also host a series of fun and interactive online cooking classes packed with nutrition-based information and delicious diabetes-friendly recipes.  The series will include Thanksgiving and Holiday demonstrations featuring guest alumni chefs and nutritionists covering a range of transition topics.

To find out more, download our NEW Alumni Recipe Guide and look out for our upcoming Webinar Series this fall!
