"Supposedly Diabetic Meal"

About: Sale Hospital / Emergency Department Sale Hospital / Medical Service/Ward

(as the patient),

I was recently a patient in Central Gippsland Health Sale.

The treatment by staff was wonderful. Breakfast was a learning experience. Margarine instead of butter, skim milk, jam, no toast but a dinner roll, I eat sourdough bread. Also Weetbix which are known to be full of sugar, and orange juice, all things that I would not eat at home. I am a diabetic.

Just wondering could the dietitian maybe sort out the meals?
