There are several different types of digestive enzymes: general, which digest many things; peptidases, which digest peptides; protein-digesting enzymes; fat-digesting enzymes; and carbohydrate-digesting enzymes. Enzymes are used in children according to what type of digestive aids they most need. One child may need more help with carbohydrate digestion, others may need help with fat digestion, some may need peptidase, and others may require combinations. My general recommendation: one-half to two digestive enzyme capsules per meal, depending upon a child’s particular needs.

Natural sweeteners like stevia and xylitol do not rob the body of its nutrient and energy resources. Stevia has zero calories, so it cannot serve as food for cancer cells. Xylitol contains calories (about 40% less than sugar), but its slow release into the blood gives it a much lower glycemic index. If taken in moderation, xylitol is unlikely to pose a problem. However, refined carbohydrates, such as pasta, white bread, pastries, and cakes are quickly broken down into glucose and act just as refined sugar does.
