A few decades ago parents would not have thought about giving coffee to children, but now it happens rather frequently, according to an article in Today. A new study, published in the journal Pediatrics, discussed a new study, which "examined the effects of low doses of caffeine in 52 children aged 8-9 and 49 children aged 15-17."

According to the results, "Even low doses of caffeine — equivalent to what you'd find in a half to a full can of soda or a cup of coffee — had an effect on kids' blood pressure and heart rates." What's more is that "…researchers found that the stimulant had more potent heart and blood pressure effects in boys than girls after puberty."

Dr. Michael Gabriel of GPM Pediatrics responds to the study's findings. "Although at this point we do not know what the long-term effects are of repeated caffeine exposure, we still should be cautious about what doses, if any, of caffeine are being given to children."

Furthermore, Dr. Gabriel agrees with the comments of Jessica Lieb, a registered dietician at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. "Just as there are some things that we should not do until we mature enough, adding caffeine to our diet seems to be another one to wait for. As Ms. Lieb said, children should wait until they are 18 to consume any form of caffeine. This may help with any negative effects on the cardiovascular system."
