Chai latte?

Kids love to be offered coffee or tea, especially if the drinks are from Starbucks. After all, every child is aspirational, or wanting to feel older than his age.

But recent studies show we don’t really know the long-term effects when a child ingests caffeine.

We know caffeine gives kids, like adults, an energy boost.

But until researchers know more, if a child wants coffee or tea, suggest decaf.
