Candies, sodas, ice cream, pies, cakes.  ..It's disturbing how many sugar-sweetened and artificially-sweetened products are consumed by our children on a daily basis.  As you know, sugar is implicated in tooth decay, diabetes and obesity.  Artificial sweeteners, which have other negative potential long-term health consequences, are not the complete answer.
Certainly, limiting your child's intake of sugary products is strongly suggested.  Another option is substituting stevia for sugar wherever possible.  For instance, instead of sweetening that glass of ice cold lemonade or chocolate milk with sugar or aspartame, use a few drops of Stevia Liquid Concentrate instead.  Or try substituting Spoonable Stevia One to OneTM for the sugar in your oatmeal cookies.  We believe that even partially substituting sugar and other sweeteners with stevia can help satisfy your child's sweet tooth while decreasing his or her health risks from excessive sugar intake.  If used correctly, your children will never know that they are’nt having sugar.
Eventually, and hopefully soon, stevia will be used in this country as an added ingredient in a variety of commercial products such as soda, candy, chewing gum, prepared foods, and baked goods.  It has been a successful addition to such products in Japan for decades as well as in dental health products such as toothpaste and mouthwash.
Be creative! Try using stevia in place of other sweeteners wherever you can, your health and the health of your family will be the benefactor!
