Children aged under 16 won’t be able to buy high-caffeine energy drinks in Lincolnshire Co-op food stores from Monday 5th March.

This sales restriction has been introduced on drinks which contain more than 150mg of caffeine per litre.

The decision comes after growing concern nationally about the affect of high levels of sugar and caffeine on youngsters. Many of these drinks are labelled as ‘unsuitable for children.’

Lincolnshire Co-op is one of several retailers to make this move.

The Society operates a tough Challenge 25 policy on age-restricted products. Shoppers who colleagues believe could be under 25 will be asked to show ID when buying high-caffeine energy drinks.
