  • Never. Children should drink water, everyone should.

    I wouldn't drink crystal light it's so bad for you.

  • Ingredients in Crystal Light Lemonade: Citric Acid (provides tartness), Potassium Citrate (controls acidity), Maltodextrin (from corn), Aspartame* (sweetener), Magnesium Oxide (prevents caking), contains less than 2% of Natural Flavor, Lemon Juice Solids, Acesulfame Potassium (sweetener), Artificial Color, Yellow 5 Lake, BHA (preserves freshness).

    Aspartame is banned in Europe from all children't products. It may be the worst artificial sweetener. It is best to avoid all artificial sweetener. There are problems with other chemicals including yellow 5 and BHA.
