Too much soda can negatively impact child's health
Updated: 12/21/2010 11:00:02 AM

Drinking soda daily may harm a child There may be more than one reason to ween younger children off soda.

A recent study has found that caffeine consumption can cause sleep problems and bed wetting in younger children and that approximately 75 percent drank caffeine on a daily basis.

Dr. William Warzak asked the parents of more than 200 subjects aged 5 to 12 years during routine clinical visits about their child's eating and drinking habits.

"Some children as young as 5 years old were consuming the equivalent of a can of soda a day," Warzak said of the results.

The high soda consumption may also cause some to worry about the children's dental health. Soda can lead to the loss of tooth enamel, one of the four major tissues that make up the tooth and the most visible in a person's mouth.

Losing tooth enamel may cause a child to be more susceptible to cavities or even gum disease. Parents who cut back on the amount of soda their child drinks may not just enhance their son or daughter's sleep patterns, they may also be an important step toward good dental health.
