    I take dextrose, also carry 9seed bars which I love, there is a carob coated one which is 13g carb, high protein so if I know I will need more energy i.e. I am cycling home - I may have a bar as well.

    I eat gluten-free jelly babies if I am out and feel myself going low, or if I have immediate access to a mini carton of fruit juice that works best. If I hypo during the night I find chocolate alpro soya milk is more comforting! Yet, if I get REALLY low during the evening, I may follow up juice with a wispa bar or a twirl bar, just to make sure.

    If I catch it before I'm through the floor, dates and/or a cocoa Nakd bar (raw fruit and nuts). If it's too low I drink some Galvanina organic lemon drink. Basically I try to avoid sugar cane or derivatives unless desperate! It makes me feel really sick. That's what comes from a diet with no added sugar...if you have to eat it, it feels really extreme! . ;)
