Identifying ways to minimize the harm of energy drinks. Because many countries allow the sale of energy drinks to young people, identifying ways to minimize potential harm from energy drinks is critical. A new study provided unique insights into intervention strategies suggested by young people themselves to reduce consumption. In addition to more research and education, these strategies included policy changes targeting energy drink sales, packaging, price, and visibility. Source 4w.

I do believe that to make energy drinks safer to younger children that a warning label be placed upon them not to be consumed by children under the age of 14 or 15. Heck under the age of 18 in my book but we all know that people do not listen to or read warning labels. Making them illegal to buy by those under the age of 18 would be in my thoughts. They can be just as dangerous to kids as tobacco use can be.
