The Department of Health and Social Care are consulting on the proposed ban on selling energy drinks to children. Please see link below: 


They are asking for your views on:

  • What products should be in included in any restrictions 
  • What age limit a ban should apply to 
  • Whether sales of energy drinks from vending machines should be restricted
  • Whether there are any changes that would be more appropriate than a ban on sales to children or that could be applied as well as a ban 

If you have any questions on the above consultation or for more information please contact Fiona Smith (Fiona.Smith@rcn.org.uk).
