Is coffee consumption good for children?

Source

There's no one who can resist a cup of coffee. Coffee means company, a moment of relationship, of sharing stories and fraternity.

We should all have coffee when we wake up, it restarts us and gives us a good start to the day.


Does anyone have a different opinion?
But I would also like to know what you think about coffee intake in pre-school children?



The issue of coffee consumption in children is quite controversial, as many people claim that caffeine activates the central nervous system, and that in children this effect is doubled. It should be noted that not all organisms are the same.
But it is believed that side effects in children include: restlessness, anxiety, nervousness and irritability.

Although there are many parents who prevent their children from drinking coffee because they claim that it contains large amounts of caffeine, caffeine is also present in soft drinks such as Coca-Cola and chocolates, which are sometimes consumed without restriction.

However, studies carried out by Harvard University in the USA show that coffee intake in children is not harmful, as they can achieve better concentration and school performance.

The recommended age for children to start tasting and getting to know the aroma of coffee is up to their parents, as it is up to them to decide whether to consume it or not.



At what age did you first drink coffee? Did you have any side effects?Let me know in the comments.


For my part, I let you know that I have been drinking coffee since I was a child. I didn't have any side effects, I was always a very quiet child. And today I can tell you that to start my day I need a cup of coffee, because if I don't drink it, the headache is horrible.
I consider myself an addict to this universal drink.

Hello @carmenm20, I can see reasoning behind some of your presented sourced information. Some things will always be controversial, and I think different cultures and people have different beliefs and practices.
Personally, I was not keen to try coffee as a child, and I would not give a child a cup of coffee without the consent of a parent.
Thanks for stopping by, have a nice day;)

Yes, it's really quite controversial. I drank coffee as a child and I gave my daughter a taste of coffee, on a couple of occasions, in very small portions just to get to know the taste.I have based my publication on the sources consulted and my personal experience.

I would imagine that a little coffee is a lot less harmful than a load of soda, topped off with candy and fast food :) ....

Yes, it is less harmful. Soft drinks contain a lot of sugar in addition to caffeine.

Coffee is usually consumed by adults in my area as far as I know, and even if children are allowed to drink coffee, they prefer milk.

When you mix the coffee with the milk, you make it a little smoother. Many children do not like the bitter taste of coffee

I used to be a Tea only drinker until I got to college with my College acquaintances introduced me to coffee. That was years ago. I now even grind my own coffee beans now, can't function without it now.

Wow, they induced you to drink coffee. But it is not something serious, I can't start the day without drinking coffee. I can tell it is my addition.

I began drinking coffee at the age of 5. A cup of coffee with breakfast and dinner was just as natural as orange juice in my home. No wonder, I wouldn't shut up. :)

I think our parents were not opposed to us consuming coffee, and they have done us no harm. They have taught us to drink the best drink

When we were kids, my Godfather who was from Italy, gave us all tiny cups with espresso and lots of milk. We didn't eat candy or drink soda, but, we all loved coffee. I switched to tea in high school and went back to coffee in college.

None of my kids are coffee/soda drinkers. They are water drinkers. Where did they come from?

Coffee is without a doubt the best
Your children consume a very healthy drink like water, free of any addictive.
I am from Venezuela.
Thank you for your visit to my publication, you are very kind to contact me about your experience.

I don't remember how old I was when I first tasted coffee. I wanted to try it for many years but my parents said, "No, it is a drink for grown-ups." They finally let me try it, maybe when I was a teenager. Mom put sugar and cream in it, and that is how I still prefer it today! 😋

How delicious the coffee with cream. Years ago there was a cafe here where they sold coffee in various presentations, cold with cream, ice creams were divine. Only when I got pregnant I came to hate The cream, I even stopped drinking coffee throughout the pregnancy, because I thought it could make the baby imperative, years later I have read that coffee does not harm the baby During pregnancy.
