MIL just gives pop to SS and when I shook my head at SS he said, "Oh, it's okay, she said so." When I complained about the sugar her response was, "Oh, it's only diet." I said okay because I knew she'd think I was a b**** otherwise if I said anymore, but sheesh, he's five. He thinks "diet" automatically means something is good for you. (I don't know what she's told him for him to think this.) Pop is still pop right? Anyone else know how bad diet is compared to regular pop?Answer Question

that and diet also has more chemicals for flavor - any thing diet is HORRIBLE for the human body - aside from the sodas, foods are the same - the chemicals in all diet foods actually bloat fat cells - tricks your body to wanting more - horrible stuff

Diet soda is just as bad for the teeth as regular soda. It's not the sugar that decays the teeth it's the acids. Read the labels on the cans. I've been a dental professional for 20 years and I have seen what diet soda does to the teeth.
The obsession with diet foods comes from the fact that as a nation we're fat. When I was growing up in the 60's we didn't have all the fast food joints like we do today. Teach your child the difference between healthy foods and foods labeled "diet"
