But chil- dren may suffer the same symp- toms from their caffeine habit. Caffeine is the most widely consumed drug in the United States by adults and children. Sixty per cent of the caffeine children consume is from soda pop. The remainder comes fron] foods such as chocolate, hot co- coa, tea, and coffee. A U. S. Department of Agri- culture survey indicated that 50 per cent of all 6- to 8-year-olds and 40 per cent of all 1- to 2- year-olds drink soft drinks. Coffee can contain more that] twice as much caffeine as a can of cola; but the physical effects caffeine produces depends upon body size. When a 30-pound child drinks a 12-ounce (:an of cola, the effect equals four cups of instant coffee on a 120-pound adult. Children and adults can be- come psychologically and physiologically dependent on caffeine. It becomes a habit. This habit can mean some trouble or some side effects for children -- now and later in life. Insomnia bothers many caf- feine consumers. When children can't fall asleep at night, you know what happens to their" at- tention span at school the next day. Many caffeine users suffer headaches when they withdraw from caffeine. Caffeine increases the chance of irregularities in heartbeat for people susceptible to those irregularities and can make the control of high blood" presssure more difficult. Coffee may sthnulate secre- tion of Stolnach acid. causing a burning sensation in the pit of the stomach. Finally, large amounts of caileine can cause irritability, anxiety, and nervous- n'SS. A study conducted by the Na- tional Institute on Mental Health found that 8- to 13-year-olds who drank seven cans of soda per day suffered nervousness, restlessness, and insomnia. How can you break your children's caffeine habit? The key is moderation. Gradually reduce the amount of caffeinated drinks, but don't feel that you must eliminate all. Replace colas and other caf- feinated sodas with fruit juice, milk, decaffeinated soda, or sparkling water mixed with fruit juice. FLx hot apple cider in place of hot cocoa. In addition to breaking the caffeine routine, you'll save inoney and be assured that your children drink more nutritious beverages for healthier living.
