School Nurse Overheard - Slower?

Student: I’m feeling tired.

School Nurse: Tired?

Student: Really tired.

School Nurse: What did you have for breakfast?

Student: A doughnut and a Coke.

School Nurse: You peak and crash after ingesting a lot of sugar. It spikes your blood sugar levels. Have you thought about improving your food choices? Maybe include some protein?

Student: What if I eat it slower? Will that keep my blood sugar more steady?
