Simple Swaps for Your Sweet Tooth

When it comes to establishing healthier eating habits, there aren't always "right" answers for everyone. What works to help you defeat your toughest food cravings (hello, sweet tooth!) might not work for someone else. With that in mind, here are some of nutritionist Dr. Madelyn Fernstrom's favorite ways to keep sugar cravings under control:
  • Sugar-free gum and mints—try cinnamon or peppermint (strong flavors stimulate your taste buds)
  • Sugar-free Jell-O and Popsicles
  • 60-calorie Jell-O pudding pack (chocolate or caramel)
  • Low-calorie hot chocolate (25 calories)
  • Don't like low-calorie sweeteners? Try single-wrapped peppermints, such as LifeSavers, peppermint Tic Tacs and Altoids, Dum Dum lollipops, mini Tootsie Roll Pops and chocolate-covered Altoids.
