One feature from www.YourCity.MD is that when you  like us on Facebook, you will see updated articles and blogs on your Facebook account when they get picked up by the service.  I received one the other day about kids drinking energy drinks/shots and sport drinks.http://www.yourcity.md/articlepage_cn.aspx?cat=con&r=y&cn-documentid=653354&s=313 .

Sports and energy drinks are marketed toward children and teens.  They have them at checkout lines of sport stores, convenient stores, and grocery stores.

Dr. Marcie Schneider, an adolescent physician states that “There are no place in children’s lives for energy shots or drinks.  Sport drinks should be consumed in limited amounts, but not the energy drinks.”  The caffeine and herbal stimulants are dangerous to a child’s system.  It can lead to high blood pressure, hyperactivity, and increased heart rate for kids.

Caffeine is also known to be de-hydrating.  To a young child’s body that creates a deficit and then sport drinks are ingested.  They are loaded with salt (part of the purpose of sport drinks is to replaced lost salt that is sweated out during intense sport activities).  That is a lot of chaos for a young child’s system. 

Water is a good choice for young children with lunches and for thirst.  If they are doing intense physical activity (soccer, baseball…) then sport drinks serve a purpose in a controlled amount.
