This may be short on ingredients, but three powerfully flavorful ingredients are all you need for a spectacular appetizer. The sweetness of the dates, crunch of the almond and the smoky bacon all come together into one fantastic mouthful.

According to the CDC Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in children and adolescents; about 151,000 people below the age of 20 years have diabetes. When diabetes strikes during childhood, it is routinely assumed to be type 1, or juvenile-onset diabetes. However, in the last 2 decades, type 2 diabetes (formerly known as adult-onset diabetes) has been reported among U.S. children and adolescents with increasing frequency.
