Without history of diabetes or confirmation why you want to try these out? These have their own side effects...better to avoid and have natural sugar when you can afford to have some and dont have diabetes still...

I am taking care of my niece who is diabetic. 9 years old. I also have her sisters who are not diabetic. They love to help cook muffins and cookies. If we make sugar free desserts, is it ok for her to eat more of them? She is hard to regulate anyway and is regularly in the 2 or 3 hundreds which I don t like. We watch her regular meals for carbs and eat a lot of proteins and vegetables. I just want her to be safe while she is in my care, but we love to bake together as well.
