The GSD has today welcomed the commitment from Government to regulate energy drinks for under 16’s. The increase in dependency of these drinks amongst children is palpable and obvious.

Shadow Minister for Health and Care Lawrence Llamas said “This is an excellent move by Government which must be welcomed by all. I have been concerned about this for some time after seeing young adults becoming more and more dependent on energy drinks with many seen drinking these on their way to school during their lunch breaks. Aside from the health implications, we must also educate and empower children to confront their lives without supplements. The emphasis and focus should be on promoting policies which stimulate stronger minds and healthier lifestyles.”
