To be clearer, there doesn't seem to be any benefits of toddlers drinking coffee. But parents are good sharers. Some experts want to make sure that parents remember there are risks involved.
Bloomberg Business reported the study stating: Parents gave the toddlers an average of two tablespoons of coffee a day, with some getting as much as half a cup, according to research released Monday by doctors at Boston Medical Center.
Experts say, parents who give their children real coffee may be increasing their risk of depression, type 1 diabetes, poor sleep, substance abuse and obesity -- all of which research has associated with caffeine use in children.
