BSDA responds to NHS Scotland energy drinks ban

The NHS has banned the sale of energy drinks to children in Scottish hospitals.

Shops within hospitals will not be permitted to sell the drinks to anyone under the age of 16. The ban applies to drinks with an added caffeine content of more than 150mg per litre.

BSDA director-general Gavin Partington said: "We have long supported the voluntary ban on the sale of energy drinks to under 16s by retailers as it is in line with our longstanding Code of Practice.

“Our members do not market or promote energy drinks to under 16s, nor do they sample products with this age group. In addition, energy drinks carry an advisory note stating ‘Not recommended for children’."
