Gilbert, Arizona (10/15/12) – SweetLeaf Stevia® Sweetener, the only all-natural stevia sweetener with zero calories, carbohydrates and glycemic response, is committed to raising awareness of childhood obesity and promoting nutrition. Studies show that one of the best ways to teach children about healthier eating is to involve them more in food choices. A significant part of the current nutrition/fitness movement, including the nationwide Let’s Move! campaign, is aimed at involving children in decisions from meal preparation to grocery shopping in order to teach them healthy eating habits.
By replacing sugar in recipes, SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Sweet DropsTM can show children that having a sweet tooth doesn’t have to ruin their nutrition. With 17 fun flavors to choose from, each drop has natural goodness and great taste – with none of the guilt that comes with sugar or artificial sweeteners. Kids can add Rootbeer to sparkling water, Vanilla Crème to yogurt to freeze for a cool treat and Chocolate to milk.
SweetLeaf Sweet Drops recipes – developed specifically for children to make food and drinks themselves to encourage good eating – include this Orange Crème Smoothie:
Orange Crème Smoothie
- 6 oz. skim milk
- 1⁄4 cup orange slices
- 4 oz. vanilla non-fat yogurt
- 4 drops Sweet Drops Vanilla Crème
- 4 drops Sweet Drops Valencia Orange
Combine ingredients and blend until smooth.
