Of course, super lows are a different story. We keep an ample supply of Juicy Juice (15g) juice boxes on hand & we are not afraid to use them!
At night . . . depending on the low we may use the little Danonino yogurts with 7g of carbs, a drinkable yogurt with 15g of carbs or if we're not messing around we always have the Costco supply of Juicy Juice in the pantry to combat the low lows.
And that is how we make the low go . . .
We love bannana's too, but we also use fruit gummy snacks called NEMO's or little bag of skittles for the hard lows..also a tablespoon of chocolate icing for the more difficult times..they never fight me with the icing. There is also a gel candy that you can squirt in their mouth...my girls say the icing and gel candy is easiest because they have difficulty chewing when they are really low. Those are those scary lows..not that they all arent scary but you know what I mean...
