    Government proposes energy drinks ban for children

    The sale of energy drinks could be banned in England to anybody under 18, amid fears they are damaging children’s health, the prime minister has said.


    Energy drinks contain high levels of sugar and caffeine and have been linked to obesity and other health issues.

    Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales have the power to implement their own bans.

    The recent tax on added sugar in soft drinks has affected the retail prices of fizzy drinks for SandwichMan. Regular Coke, Diet Coke and Coke Zero are all differently priced now.

    The sugar tax only applies to artificially added sugar, not the monosaccharide or disaccharide naturally contained in some products.
