Energy drink guidance

Monday 7th January 2019

The above guidance on energy drinks for professionals has been published by Wiltshire Council to raise awareness of the negative impact that energy drink consumption can have and to prepare for a proposed change in legislation, which could see the sale of energy drinks banned to children and young people.

Energy drinks consumption can result in tiredness, irritation, difficulties concentrating, headaches and sleeping problems. Therefore, it is vital to work together to try to reduce the consumption of these drinks in children and young people. 

Caffeine can be covered as part of drug education and PSHE education.
