Is the amount of caffeine in your child’s diet keeping you awake at night?
No one will deny caffeine’s ability to enhance mood and alertness, but it’s easy for kids to get too much.
Insomnia has also been linked to kids who have too much caffeine in their diet. What makes it harder for parents to keep their child’s caffeine intake down is the fact that it is found in so many more foods than just soft drinks, coffee, or tea.
Talk to a dietitian or your pediatrician if you have concerns about how much caffeine is in your child’s diet.
