Are Coca‑Cola products bad for children?
Our products are safe for consumption as part of a balanced and varied diet. We do not market any of our products to those under the age of 12. We believe that, for children, it is appropriate for parents and carers to decide which drinks, how much thereof and how often they can be consumed.
Details on a balanced and varied diet for children can be found at the safefood / Health Services Executive’s (HSE) ‘Little Steps’ campaign website. This features both the Food Pyramid (ROI) and Eat Well Plate (NI) models, which both show the inclusion of soft drinks in moderation within a balanced diet.
