Non-nutritive sweeteners are much sweeter than sugar and do not add calories. They are probably safe for use in children but do not have significant evidence for efficacy in prevention or treatment of obesity of weight in children. Cross sectional studies suggest their use is associated with higher calorie intake in kids. It is preferable to eliminate or reduce intake of sugars and especially sweet beverages without using non-nutritive sweeteners.
