Can you be more specific as to why you believe kids should not drink green tea? Kids in Asia drink green tea all the time.

What about 8 year olds, that should be fine, right?

Are there studies to prove green tea is bad for kids?

It only has 15 mgs of caffeine. Relatively speaking, what's worse for kids, sugary juices? processed carbs? white foods? Corn syrup? or green tea?
