From America On-Line:

If a yogurt has Nutrasweet [brand of aspartame] in it, can a diabetic eat it?


Someone with diabetes can eat any kind of yogurt; you just have to make sure that you count the number of carbs correctly. Talk to your dietitian about it, if you're unsure how to count the carbs in your foods.

Also, I have noticed that in some children, milk products given at bedtime will raise the morning blood sugar. In that case, try cutting down on the amount if you eat yogurt as an evening snack.


Additional comments from Joyce Mosiman:

Yogurt sweetened with Nutrasweet (about 6 oz.) is equal to a milk serving of 8 ounces. Enjoy!
