Polyvalent alcohols, like sorbitol and xylitol, are nature’s sweeteners, bringing joy without the sugar rush to little ones.
These sugar substitutes sweeten foods and drinks, offering a reduced caloric intake and lesser impact on blood sugar. For kids, they can be a healthier alternative, but in large amounts, they might cause digestive discomfort.
You’ll find them in sugar-free gums, candies, and some baked goods. If your child has a sensitive stomach, it’s wise to monitor their intake. Parents can opt for naturally sweetened foods to avoid any digestive issues.
