Kid Friendly Natural Sweetener
If you have young kids and you're trying to avoid sugar in their diet, Sweet Leaf Liquid Stevia is a must have for your pantry. Our family favorite is the Vanilla Creme flavor. I was able to wean the kids off sweetened yogurt by adding a few drops to plain yogurt and topping with blueberries. The kids LOVE it! My other personal favorite is the English Toffee flavor. Perfect if you like a little sweetness in your coffee or tea! Stevia is simply an herb. It has zero calories, zero carbohydrates, zero glycemic index and is a healthy prebiotic for friendly bacteria in the gut. You can Google hundreds of ways to use it in your cooking.
