Energy Drinks at School: Attention Parents

Energy Drinks at School: Attention Parents

Please be aware that elementary students at NAEC are not permitted to bring Energy Drinks such as Red Bull, Rock Star, and Monster etc to school.

Energy drinks are not recommended for children because of their high levels of caffeine, and other ingredients. In some cases, one energy drink could have more caffeine than the safe daily intake. Children are at increased risk of experiencing behavioural effects from consuming caffeine. Health Canada has received a number of reports of suspected health problems associated with energy drinks. Symptoms have included irregular heartbeat and nervousness.
