Kids and Coffee: To Drink or Not to Drink?
Coffee. Who doesn’t love that killer aroma? Drink a cup, black and caffeinated – it’s good for you. Drink it with sugar, drink decaf, can’t wake up without it but ultimately it’s bad for you.
So, what do you want for your kids? Are you okay with them getting into that coffee habit? Our town’s high school sells coffee to its students. I don’t get it. We take out the soda. We bring in the coffee. Is there really a difference?
Chances are kids aren’t drinking the stuff black. They’re not limiting to one cup either. All that caffeine makes them jittery, saps their calcium and makes them dependent. Of course we can then give them ADD drugs and vitamins. Something just doesn’t seem right to me.
