  • Definitely no Splenda! Agave is probably the safest sweetener.

    This is another great website for ADD/ADHD info:

  • Hell, I give my kid sugar because it calms him down!

  • I don't think ANYONE should be using any artificial sweetners. My son is ADHD/ADD and sugar has NO affect on him.

  • Yeah... I was kinda pissed when adults tried to give me that stuff when I was 7 or 8... really allergic to white sugar and couldn't have sweets, but knew in the '80's that lab rats got cancer from it!
