DS's school who until recently was serving water or milk at lunchtime now serves sugar free squash...............
This is whilst the dinner lady was away and the catering company pushed it through... the head said as long as it is sugar free.... can anyone point me in the direction of good info on the sins of aspartame.... am struggling to find good websites for this.
The bad problem of aspartame is that is a substance that it's not elimated from the body and its effects are not yet well known. I think is far worse to give aspartame to a child than sugar. Could you convince the head to go for the sugar drinks instead?
No links, but I'm asthmatic and aspartame can be one of my triggers (with another trigger combined - usually certain food colourings). I actively avoid low sugar things at all cost - would much rather my kids had the high sugar varieties!
