    sweetie- child's word a sweet sweet- having a taste similar to that of sugar so actually no difference.

    Re: Doubt

    In what context?

    A sweet [something that you eat] is the same as a sweetie/sweety.

    You can say of a person "She/He is a sweetie" - which can mean many things. The person is kind, generous, good-tempered etc.

    You can say "He/She is sweet" which means essentially that the person is inoffensive and somewhat saccharine.
