    interesting!

    My 6 year old daughter absolutely loves coffee. The total amount she drinks is minimal - a few ounces, as she also likes her cream. From a very young age she used to 'steal' sips from me, so I started making up a little cup for her.
    I figure that she was getting more cream than caffeine and she needed extra fat grams. She is tiny, but that could be from being premature, or just inherited from my side of the family. We are all small people, and not all of us like coffee.
    But because I allow her to have coffee, and she is tiny, I am always told that her growth will be stunted, and I am an evil evil mother.
    My 12 yo niece was the same way, loved her coffee from a very early age - and she is taller than most kids her age.

    By the way, having worked at a coffee/espresso place for a few years, I can tell you that its not the coffee that makes people fat - its the cream they add to their coffee! Duh! One lady complained that she didnt know why she was gaining weight, but yet she would come in twice a day and get a 20 ounce Breve (Cream) with some caramel flavoring and a double shot of espresso.....sheesh!

    Good for Kids?

    Children and Coffee

    "Overall, the research shows that coffee is far more healthful than it is harmful," says Tomas DePaulis, PhD, research scientist at Vanderbilt University's Institute for Coffee Studies, which conducts its own medical research and tracks coffee studies from around the world. "For most people, very little bad comes from drinking it, but a lot of good."


    How does this brew affect growing minds and bodies? Very nicely, it seems, says DePaulis. Coffee, as you probably know, makes you more alert, which can boost concentration. But claims that it improves a child's academic performance can be exaggerated. Coffee-drinking kids may do better on school tests because they're more awake, but most task-to-task lab studies suggest that coffee doesn't really improve mental performance, says DePaulis.


    But it helps kids' minds in another way. "There recently was a study from Brazil finding that children who drink coffee with milk each day are less likely to have depression than other children," he tells WebMD. "In fact, no studies show that coffee in reasonable amounts is in any way harmful to children."

    Hello. This is my first post.

    Is there a polite way to let people know this is a myth, without sounding like a know-it-all...?

    I've been drinking coffee for more years than I can remember. Never mind the fact that I stand just below the average coffee table height

    This ones been around a while and I have not put my $ worth in yet. I too have been drinking coffee on a regular basis since I was a teen. When I was at varsity I used to drink 13-15 cups a day...not because I needed to stay awake, but rather because the cafe was a way to avoid attending lectures ... anyway these days I don't really count how many I drink... or how many beans I chew! As to the height thing... I am 184cm (um...imperial I think thats about 6'2")...so I guess that's one to the slate for caffeine has little effect on height.
