Among kids, soda is out, energy and coffee drinks are all the buzz
Kids are drinking less soda, but more coffee and energy drinks, according to a recent study. In research published in the journal Pediatrics, researchers looked at trends in caffeine intake among people ages 2 to 22 between 1999 to 2010. They found that in 1999, 62 percent of kids and young adults got most of their caffeine from soda. But in 2010, that number dropped significantly to 38 percent.
