BACK in the 1950s, according to official records, 55 per cent of four-year-olds drank tea with their meals while just 10 per cent had soda or juice. Child obesity was so unusual statistics were not recorded. The Nineties noticed a change in the tea consumption pattern of children. While technology and economy were progressing, tea consumption among children had fallen to a considerable level and as of now, it is not even recorded in the National surveys related to children’s health and diet.

However, studies have proved that small doses of tea for under-fives helped teeth, built concentration, hydrates, aids social development, boosts brain power and sporting performance.  It was found in a study that modest intake of caffeine can increase the power in kids when their strength was tested during exercise routines.

When compared to energy drinks, an average cup of tea contains 50mg of caffeine while energy drinks have around 80mg of caffeine level.  When milk is added to tea, it gives a calcium boost to the drink and thus becomes a benefitting intake for kids of all ages.
