Doctors now say children and teens should stay away from energy drinks.
The American Academy of Pediatrics says some popular energy drinks contain a lot of caffeine.
Researchers claim the levels of caffeine can be dangerous for kids.
The energy drinks contain caffeine levels that are several times higher than those found in a single cup of coffee.
A new report released in the Journal of Pediatrics shows that teens are better off drinking water, as the levels of caffeine in energy drinks could lead to high blood pressure and insomnia.
