It is my belief, and shared with many, that children under 16 do not require energy drinks. 

Contacting the police via 101, I learned that the banning of selling energy drinks to under 16's was not against the law, but larger supermarkets, like Tesco, Sainsburys and Morrison's decided against selling to under 16's due to the high amount of sugar and caffeine, but smaller retailers and outlets could sell at their own discretion.

I have several small shops by me, one I know used to allow the sale, but no longer does, but another willing sells without question and I am sure there are many more who do.

Under 16's do not require energy drinks and even adults have stopped drinking themselves as they have learned that it's not entirely good for them as well.

It's not just the impact on health, but these under 16's discard their empty cans in play parks and anywhere else, even if there is a bin present. 

As a father myself I don't wish my 2 year old daughter to end up being swayed towards an addictive and harmful to health product when she doesn't need this extra energy.
