I know we've discussed artificial sweeteners before so thought I'd share this article:


The original study was from the Journal of Obesity and suggests that using artificial sweeteners may throw off the body's ability to self-regulate caloric intake, something that toddlers are very good at but adults not so much. The study was done with RATS not children though and it contradicts other studies on adults so certainly not conclusive.
