Sugars In Fruit Juice

18 month old has diahreah for 3 days and no other symptoms. Can no sugar added organic fruit juice be causing it? He prefers juices over milk lately
The fruit juice I give my 20 month old had less than a gram of sugar but did not realize it contained sucralose. Is sucralose harmful to toddlers?
Not necessarily: 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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can i use pure fruit juice/juice concentrate to sweeten dishes so as to avoid bad effect of sugar?Is the fructose,glucose in fruit better than sucrose

Processed foods from the store that say "naturally sweetened with juice" and use grape juice (or another juice) are bad like products using sucrose. The best thing to do is to train oneself to enjoy unsweetened or only slightly sweetened foods and drinks. ...Read more

Absolutely Not: Adds: As animals we need little to no carbohydrate (all sugars, simple & complex) intake. Yet most humans have a sweet tooth. Not all fruit can be sold before spoiling, esp. not at higher prices, plus people will not buy fruit what has been frozen, thus lots of fruits are converted to juices which can be frozen & stored smoothing out labile supply & prices. However all fruits high sugar: very unhealthy. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
