Are you trying to cut out refined sugar or corn syrup altogether or just limiting it in his diet?

My husband is type 2 diabetic and I have insulin resistance. If your son can have wheat this can save you. HEB makes wheat tortillas that are low carb (carbs turn to sugar quickly in the body). You can toast them and make chips out of them ( cut them first ). Also great for fajitas,soft tacos, or even with a slice of cheese. I end up eating lots of chicken and greens. There are still the old ants on a log (celery, pb and rasins). I doubt that your little one will like french fried onions, like the ones on green bean cassirole at Thanksgiving. There are lots of sugar free cookies, jello, and pudding. Be aware that sugar free candies and above need to be eaten in moderation or else it could cause a major colon cleanser. Good luck.
UPDATE http://www.murraysugarfree.com/index.shtml these are REALLY GOOD....my husband even loves them again only a few at a time.

There is a book published titled, Sugars And Flours how they make us crazy, sick and fat and what to do about it By Joan Ifland. You can purchase this at Whole Foods Market or in a nutrition aisle. Published by 1st Books Library, www.1stbooks.com
There is also a rsourse called The Sugars and Flours Project www.sugarsandflours.com
I tried this method several years ago and I regret that I retreated back to my old ways. It did help me feel better and I am sure that the information in this book will enlighten all who read the content.
