HI Everyone -

I am still trying to figure some things out. I am so new at this that I rell like an idiot with certain things. Has anyone heard about not having Red Dye #40 in their pregnancy? Also, what about "diet" drinks?

Thanks, Toni

it depends on how picky you wanna get. if you read the book "skinny bitch, bun in the oven" you will get scared into eating only fresh fruits and vegs and all natural everything. all the food colorings are bad and are bad for kids too. the fake sugars in diet pop have a higher glycemic index than regular pop does, and the chemical concoction it takes to make those fake sugars is very bad. but if you are already used to it, it can be hard to give up. i drink a cup of caffenine free regular coke every now and then, but try to stick to fresh juices and water. good luck!
