I have recently become pregnant and I am completely addicted to the Wal-Mart alternative for Crystal-Lite, the Classic Sunrise flavor, which contains aspartame. I drink about 5 bottles a day of the stuff. I heard that this may be harmful for my unborn. Have you guys heard anything like that?
I have read different controversial articles on the additive aspartame.
Here is a great article on the additive by Mercola.
As a family of 7 we avoid aspartame at all costs.
Here are a few alternatives to fruit drinks....maybe you can try them and let us know how you like them.
You can add any combination of these fruits and herbs to a mason jar or bottle of water.
If you like sweet water, add a spoon of morena sugar (found at walmart).
2-3 cut up strawberries
3-4 mint leaves
Try any 2 or 3 and it will be divine and much healthier for you and your baby.
If you like cold...add some ice cubes.
Let us know what your favorite mix is.
