Nutrition is an integral part of diabetes management. Caregiver nutritional knowledge has been implicated in glycemic management of youth with type 1 diabetes. This study assessed the nutritional knowledge of parents/caregivers of children newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Findings suggest there is a need for more targeted support and training during the initial diagnosis and a desire for more technology-related resources such as virtual nutritionist-guided gro-cery shopping visits. Integrating these interventions into routine care for children with type 1 diabetes will help ad-dress the current gaps in caregiver nutritional literacy and their ability to provide appropriate care.
