Parents Beware! Energy Drinks in Disguise

We all remember the advent of energy drinks and how they guzzled down by teens and tweens before sporting events or other activities to give them an edge. We also remember how bad they were for our kids. There was a lot of prevention work done a decade ago to educate parents and children on the negative effects of these beverages. Well, it’s back now in the form of a beverage many teens drink on a daily  basis – cola.  Coca Cola and Pepsi are now offering their cola with caffeine boosts which equates to twice the amount of caffeine in a normal can of cola.
