Primary schoolchildren are consuming up to eight energy drinks a day, teachers have warned.
Can It Campaign
Independent Scots shopkeepers are being encouraged to stop selling energy drinks to children as momentum in support of stricter controls on the caffeine-packed products gathers pace.

A Fife secondary school has underlined its support for The Courier’s ‘Can It’ campaign by formally banning energy and high sugar drinks on school premises.
