This narrative review explores the potential effects of caffeine intake on children and adolescents and the areas that need further research. An increasing range of products contain caffeine, including energy and soft drinks, jelly beans, chewing gum, and marshmallows. Side effects of caffeine intake for children can include decreased sleep, poor nutrition, aggressive behaviour, reduced academic ability, and greater likelihood of consuming excessive caffeine and caffeine-containing alcoholic drinks as young adults.
