Energy Drinks - More Hype than Substance

Energy Drinks – More Hype than Substance
Noting that sports/energy drinks are aggressively marketed to children and families, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Committee on Nutrition and the AAP Council on Sports Medicine and Fitness recommend that “caffeine and other stimulant substances contained in energy drinks have no place in the diet of children and adolescents. Furthermore, frequent or excessive intake of caloric sports drinks can substantially increase the risk for overweight or obesity in children and adolescents.”

Energy and sports drinks are often marketed as dietary supplements. Since they look and taste like “regular” beverages, families and consumers may assume they are safe. There are no requirements for evidence of safety/effectiveness before dietary supplements are marketed.

Families are encouraged to look for healthful and affordable beverage choices.
