That's weird, on my campus our vending machines sell sodas and the like but no energy drinks.

It would be to do with the amount of sugar in them I believe. Studies have shown that high blood sugar levels affect concentration adversely, perhaps Red Bull and such like don't have nearly so much sugar content as Pepsi and Coke.

Doubt it. Energy drinks often have quite a bit of sugar in them, I think it's around as much as Coke, but I don't have a bottle of it with me right now to check. It may, however, be the alertness that caffeine provides that makes energy drinks "acceptable" in those schools. I can't think of any other reason why they'd be allowed, if Coke isn't permitted.

I work at a HS and they took out all but the Powerade machines. We have soda machine in the teachers room, but I mostly see people buying water not soda. Oh, yeah, it is the sugar ones, not the sugar-free ones. The nurse fought at many board meetings to have those removed from campus due to sugar content, too. She lost that battle. It's all about student-funds. They are filled with sales from those machines.

I do have energy drinks I take sometimes that are 4 calories and no sugar. But I cannot imagine them being sold at school. I have actually never heard of that before. Most kids won't drink the diet SF redbull anyway, so I would think given the money made on them, it would not be re-stocked. If the kids want energy, they can eat a good breakfast; It is weird for me to hear the school sells that. I do have kids walking in first period with them-they stop at the gas station on the way to school usually.

A friend of mine went to school in OR and he said they had those huge apples in a refrigerated turn-style type thing and for a quarter you got a big, cold crunchy apple. That would be cool. A good apple instead of the ones the cafeteria gives...heck, oranges, apples, any fruit would sell if that is all there is to buy.

I've never had a hankering for an energy drink. Just like I've never had a hankering for Twitter or texting. Too high tech. Tried an energy drink a couple of times and each one was horrible, to me. I'm a coffee, tea, and water person, and those are good enough for me!!

Default Foods, Drinks, Nutrition the help Memory, Intelligence, Having More Energy, Sleeping Well, Relaxing, and Focus.

This is similar to a recent informative topic while also technically being about a separate topic.

It is important to have a well balanced diet that has most vitamins and nutrients such as B vitamins, A, C, D, E, Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium, Antioxidants Bioflavanoids, Omega 3, 6, 9, and to not have any nutrient deficiencies that get in the way of someone’s health. A cheap affordable natural Multivitamin Supplement is also able to easily help the situation with nutrition.

Vitamins and Nutrients all have an influence in Memory, Intelligence Cognitive Function, Energy, Sleeping well, Relaxing, and Focus.

Based on personal experience, healthy eating and nutrition is so good for my health and my life.
