    Should children be allowed to drink "energy drinks"?

    I would have to say no for the simple fact that I find them to be kind of addictive and kids are already restricted from other various addictive items (i.e. pain pills, cigarettes, alcohol, etc.).

    No. they have too much energy as it is.  That's like taking up a collection for Bill Gates--that poor bastard.

    I think energy drinks are bad enough for adults, let alone kids. Who knows the long term effect it would have on them.

    No, they have been proven bad for adults, they are full of sugar which would compound an explosive obesity problem in children. At $3-$4 a piece they can stick with juice.

    Nope. Those drinks are terrible for you! Kids are hyper enough. Would anyone really want to see a child on one of those drinks? smile

    No, just like anything else that is filled with sugar, caffeine and empty calories.  If we can teach them NOW not to get hooked on this stuff, they will make better choices in the future about nutrition.

    I would never give any of my children energy drinks, not only do they contain lots of sugar but they also contain other ingredients that are proven to be bad for adults let alone your child.

    Read the label and use your common sense with anything you feed your children.  Humans should not be drinking that stuff in general.

    I would not allow my daughter to drink them.  She has Epilepsy and anything can throw the delicate balance in her brain off.  Caffeine is a stimulant and it's really not healthy for anyone.  I drink coffee on occassion just because it helps my poor, old body get moving in the morning - but I would not want my daughter drinking it.
