Splenda Twitter Party and Donations to Stop Diabetes - Jessica McFadden is A Parent in America – One Funny Mother Blogger

This post is part of the Splenda 365 Sweet Swaps Blogger Program by McNeil Nutritionals and The Motherhood, who sent me products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are my own, and I hope you enjoy them.

25.8 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes. That is over 8 percent of our country’s population.  

Sucralose, aka Splenda, is an FDA-approved and American Diabetes Association (ADA)-recommended sugar substitute for people with diabetes and pre-diabetes. Splenda is a supporter of the Stop Diabetes movement and is helping to raise awareness about nutrition changes to manage and prevent diabetes, increase research, advocate for diabetes and increase community outreach to take a stand against this devastating disease.

Although I have personally swapped Splenda for sugar to cut back on calories in baking, my morning coffee and recipes, it is also an important swap for those with diabetes. 

I have grandparents with diabetes, and I am concerned about my family history and personal, possible tendency toward this dangerous disorder. I found this quick, professional quiz at the ADA website to gauge personal diabetes risk very informative.

At a Splenda #SweetSwaps Twitter Party tomorrow afternoon, sure, there will be the prizes and entertaining chat you would expect. But get this:  For each Tweet that contains the #SweetSwaps hashtag, Splenda will make a $3.65 contribution, donating up to $25,000 to the American Diabetes Association.  Please join me tomorrow for this great cause!
