Hi Doc,

The Darling Lite Mixed Berry Juice contains the following:
Aronia Berry Juice Concentrate, Plum Puree, Apple Juice Concentrate, Suger, Water, Citric Acid (E330) ,Natural Colourant (E163), Natural Flavour, Vitamin C (E300)

Non-Nutritive Sweetner (*Aspartame E951 &  Acesulfame K E950)
Preservative (Potassium Sorbate E202 &  Acesulfame K E950)

*Contaims Phenylalanine

If the above sweetners &  Preservatives are not ideal, which sweetners and preservatives are safe for our children?

Thanking you in advance!

These are artificial sweeteners and they are approved but I would prefer noyt to give them to young children.Also this fruit juice mix contains a preservative.Rather use natural fruit juice without preservatives and added sweeteners for your children. Liquifruit and Ceres friut juices do not contain added sugar or preservatives. Fruit juices should be diluted for children and only given once a day.
