Try adding natural sweeteners to food instead of sugar or artificial sweeteners.
Stevia, Agave nectar, Rapadura, Unsweetened applesauce, or Brown rice syrup.
These are all healthier options to things like, saccharin, Aspartame, Cyclamate, Sucralose and many others.
My personal favorite choice is Agave Nectar, I put it on everything that needs to be sweetened. It goes in my homemade granola bars, cream of wheat, cheerios, and in my tea and coffee. It tastes so good and a little goes a long way.
