Can I consume artificial sweeteners?
You've finally got your appetite back and you're craving something sweet and non-alcoholic: is Diet Coke okay while pregnant?
The following artificial sweeteners are okay to consume in pregnancy:
- aspartame (NutraSweet)
- sucralose (Splenda)
- saccharin (Sweet 'N Low)
- stevioside (Stevia)
Avoid: Neotame as there is limited research on this artificial sweetener.
Always use in moderation. It is best to limit artificial sweeteners to one serving per day.
