Smart Nutrition: Fake Sugars & Kids; Low-Fat vs. Low-Carb Diets
Artificial sweeteners aren’t just in diet sodas anymore, they’re in many of the processed foods we eat, and a new study shows consumption of those fake sugars is soaring among the very young – from middle schoolers to toddlers. Should we be worried about that? Licensed nutritionist Monica Reinagel thinks so. She joins us today for another edition of Smart Nutrition. She’ll also weigh in on the never-ending debate over those low-fat versus low-carb diets – a debate the Nutrition Diva says we probably don’t need to have.
And she takes your calls, emails and tweets about food, dieting and nutrition.
