An assessment of potential adverse health effects as a result of the consumption of energy drinks by children and adolescents

Children and adolescents who drink large portions of energy drinks containing caffeine, especially if consumed within a short period of time, can have problems sleeping and can experience anxiety and cardiovascular effects. Occasional consumption by young people of small amounts of caffeinated energy drinks, however, is not associated with negative health effects.
