Why can't he? I am Diabetic and I eat yogurt almost everyday. They have some out that are only 7 or 9 carbs. The sour cream that I buy is California Sunshine and it has 2 carbs. Check them out. For a snack he can have 25 carbs three times a day.

Do Not Worry
6:25-33 pp—Lk 12:22-31
Mt 6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
There doesn't seem to be a lot of choices out there that are not dairy-based:
Substitute one of the following for each 1 cup of sour cream:
• For baking: 7/8 cup buttermilk or sour milk plus 3 tablespoons butter. • For baking: 1 cup yogurt plus 1 teaspoon baking soda. • For baking: 3/4 cup sour milk plus 1/3 cup butter. • For baking: 3/4 cup buttermilk plus 1/3 cup butter. • Cooked sauces: 1 cup yogurt plus 1 tablespoon flour plus 2 teaspoons water. • Cooked sauces: 1 cup evaporated milk plus 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice. Let stand 5 minutes to thicken. • Dips: 1 cup yogurt (drain through a cheesecloth-lined sieve for 30 minutes in the refrigerator for a thicker texture). • Dips: 1 cup cottage cheese plus 1/4 cup yogurt or buttermilk, briefly whirled in a blender. • Dips: 6 ounces cream cheese plus 3 tablespoons milk, briefly whirled in a blender. • Lower fat: 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice plus 2 tablespoons skim milk, whipped until smooth in a blender. • Lower fat: 1 can chilled evaporated milk whipped with 1 teaspoon lemon juice.
