Bulls are animals used for their meat, milk, leather and other products. Some bulls can be used for breeding, and some bulls can be used for fighting. The age limit for bulls varies depending on where they are used. In most cases, the age limit for bulls is six years. While a number of major retailers have already banned the sale of energy drinks to children, this was not a legal requirement, and energy drinks are still available at other retailers, convenience stores and vending machines. In recent years, energy drinks have taken the consumer beverage industry by storm. Manufacturers are no longer focusing solely on sports to sell their drinks, but have also infiltrated gaming culture, extreme sports, and the music industry. Redbull even has its own music academy. They are so deeply rooted in pop culture, especially youth pop culture, that young people in the UK now drink more energy drinks than the rest of Europe. Underage children can buy energy drinks without ID, there is no legal requirement for them to present ID Last year, the NASUWT teachers` union called on all retailers to ban the sale of drinks to under-16s. National Education chief Darren Northcott described the drinks as “legal highs” that have helped encourage bad behaviour in schools. “Last year, we consulted on ending the sale of energy drinks to children.
The consultation showed overwhelming public support: 93% of respondents agreed that companies should be banned from selling these drinks to children. Consumption of Red Bull should be limited to those who are physically active and have a healthy heart. Drinks such as Red Bull, Relentless, Monster Energy and Rockstar are becoming increasingly popular. Children and teens consume more than adults, even though industry labelling guidelines state that any soft drink containing more than 150 mg of caffeine per litre must carry a warning about its high caffeine content and is not recommended for children. “We need a level playing field so that we can protect all our children from buying these beverages from all independent retailers. The Food Standards Agency has warned that energy drinks can contain high levels of caffeine, typically around 80mg in a 250ml can – similar to the amount in three cans of Coca-Cola or a cup of instant coffee. “To see a health brand like Boots join the under-16 energy drink ban is great,” Oliver said. “Our retailers are doing the right thing for the health of our children, and now is the time for the government to step in, close the loop and implement a ban. Individuals should drink no more than two cans of Red Bull per day. Health Secretary Steve Brine said: “We all have a responsibility to protect children from products that harm their health and education, and we know that drinks filled to the brim with caffeine and often sugar are becoming a common part of their diet. “Our children already consume 50% more of these drinks than our European counterparts, and teachers have made worrying links between energy drinks and bad classroom behaviour.” When a child drinks an energy drink, it`s important to talk to them about the dangers and tell them to avoid them if they`re not feeling well. Unsurprisingly, attention shifted to another place in 2020 and 2021 as we struggled with the pandemic, and the policy was never officially introduced.
But now it seems to have quietly disappeared from the agenda.
