      Caffeinated soda remains the favored and readily available source of caffeine for preadolescent children. Extensive documentation highlights the risks associated with excessive consumption of both sugars and caffeine. Moreover, a robust correlation exists between the intake of caffeinated beverages during adolescence and subsequent substance use, encompassing alcohol and marijuana.
      The utilization of psychotropic substances in childhood is linked to impulsivity as well as other manifestations of impaired executive function. Over time, this initial substance use may escalate to the consumption of progressively stronger substances.
