It has not been shown that sucralose is harmful for children or toddlers. But I would try to limit.

I consider fruit juice a junk food for kids, but I do n't consider the sucralose as harmful.I actually use it as a therapy. Prune juice has a relatively high content and I use it for constipated infants. It usually works well to get them moving.
