How much caffeine is safe for my child?


This is a sticky issue. Some researchers have discovered that nearly 80% of children consume too much caffeine on a regular basis. They are drinking sodas and energy drinks that contain too much caffeine. Plus, the stimulant is found in chocolate, tea and other sweets.

Here are a few of the side effects associated with caffeine consumption among children:
Heart arrhythmia
Impulsive behavior
Lack of focus

For this reason, experts tend to agree that children should consume less than 100 mg of caffeine each day. This is about the equivalent of two cans of soda. Of course, it is better if children do not drink any soda at all.

Always check with your doctor regarding health concerns for your infant or child.
