Hey Everyone,
I had an amazing evening yesterday, attending my best friend’s Baby Shower.
Artificial Sweeteners 1
She loved the Air Filled Rubber Cot Sheet I gifted her from Motherbee.
My friend (Shipra) has diabetes and the topic of discussion was

For ladies with a sweet tooth like my dear friend, its not easy to resist anything that has a sugary taste!
So what are they supposed to do? Refrain from anything sweet all through those nine months?
Not necessarily!

  • There are a lot of options and much confusion when it comes to artificial sweeteners
  • Pregnant women can safely use low-calorie sweeteners in moderation, unless otherwise advised by their physicians
  • Many health organizations and healthcare providers suggest limiting artificially sweetened foods in your diet to only 2 or 3 servings a day. Examples of one serving include:
    • 1/2 cup of pudding, ice cream, or gelatin product
    • one bowl of sweetened cereal
    • one portion of a bakery item

Here’s what the Experts have to say:

  • Artificial sweeteners are safe to use during pregnancy in moderation. They have been extensively tested.
  • STEVIA on the other hand, has not been extensively tested and many safety questions are left unanswered; therefore is should NOT be used during pregnancy.

So go ahead, enjoy every moment of being pregnant, stay healthy, stay safe.
The joys of motherhood await you! 🙂
