From 1999 to 2010, consumption of caffeinated beverages among young people did not increase, according to a study in the journal Pediatrics. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends against caffeine intake among young people, but researchers found that 73% of 2- to 22-year-olds consumed caffeine on a given day, including 63% of 2- to 5-year-olds. The amount of caffeine intake from soda declined over the study period, while intake of caffeine from coffee and energy drinks rose.
