Children are drinking less and less soda as the years go on, which is good news! However, even as they’re drinking less soda, they’re ingesting more and more caffeine. In fact, up to 75% of American kids consume some form of caffeine every day. This can be blamed on the popularity of energy drinks among children.
While you probably know that caffeine is bad for kids, you may not know all of the reasons why. Below are a few things you should keep in mind before allowing your children to consume caffeine.
The best way to protect your child from caffeine is to avoid having these beverages in the home. This will not only benefit your child’s dental and oral health but his or her overall health as well.
If you are concerned that your child’s caffeine consumption is damaging his or her teeth, please make an appointment at Little Rockies Pediatric Dentistry. Our pediatric dental office is located here in Parker, Colorado.
