How do I prevent my dog from literally eating any crap she can find?

This is a serious request for help. My dog is approaching a year old now and is fascinated with eating shit. Cat shit is her favorite but she's now pulling dirty diapers out of the trash and licking them clean.
Helath issues aside, this is so incredibly disgusting to me that I simply cannot take it anymore.
My question is: what can I do to stop her from eating crap and what can I do to stop her from wanting to eat crap?

I've been thinking setting her up with some specially prepped crap that's been heavily, heavily douses in some of that 9 billion scoville units hot sauce but don't want to hurt her.
Some people have said that she'll grow out of it on her own but its not happening and I'm just not willing to wait anymore. Knowing that my dog's stomach is filled with my son's poop is beyond gross, its revolting.
Sorry for the visceral nature of the post but I'm still venting the nastiness.
