Artificial Sweeteners Poll
My oldest is now in 1st grade, and before I start tearing up I better make my point! This is the first year she will be eating at school. I've opted for the sack lunch option which naturally includes some goodies.
I purchased some sugar-free puddings and other sugar-free items to put in her lunches. This is because I've noticed the craziness in my house after my kids have eaten surgary foods and I don't want that to happen to her poor teacher at school!
The problem is, I don't know much about artificial sweeteners. One study says they're fine, while another lists some terrible side effects (Sucralose, like Splenda). So what would you give your children?
