A high school in New Zealand has banned energy drinks following reports that students were substituting the drinks for breakfast. Under the ban, energy drinks will be confiscated from students after 23 April. "Without a good breakfast it makes it really difficult to meet the daily requirements of a number of nutrients," said Community and Public Health nutrition promoter Jennifer Brand. "Not only that, those who eat breakfast learn better as they have better energy levels and concentration, they are more active and have a healthy weight."
