Hi Ms. Gee. First I would like to say thank you for taking the time to do this another week. My question is about artificial sweeteners. I use them almost every day. I put splenda in my coffee and on my cereal. I use sweet and low in my iced tea. I also drink ALOT of crystal light. There is artificial sweetener in alot of other stuff I eat, such as: yogurt and pudding. Is it ok for me to consume them every day?

Another question I had on the same subject is the consumption of artificial sweeteners in children. I have 12 year old and 6 year old daughters. They both love crystal light, yogurt, and pudding with the artificial sweeteners in them. Is it ok for them to eat it every day or should I limit how much they eat? I don't want to feed them something that could potentially harm them.

Thank you again so much for this.
