Diet soda and your child

       
 
The media has been presenting abundant information on how the American diet negatively impacts the health of our young ones.  Children are receiving sugary, fatty foods in the cafeteria, in the lunch room snack machines, and at home on the dinner table. And, with children being over 50% less active than two decades ago, this poses some very real health concerns.

 For example, consider that over the past fifty years, the consumption of soda has increased nearly 500 percent as kids are now drinking soda younger and younger. This is a staggering amount of soda and highly sweetened soft drinks.  What does the future hold healthwise for these children? Well, the outlook looks bleak.
