This is my opinion on it too. They don't get gum, I am completely 100% against artificial sweeteners and while there are a few brands that are just real sugar my kids also have awful teeth so I don't feel like they need to chew on sugar for an extended period.

That said my kids are 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 and I am doubtful either of them would really "get" gum.
