In response to food researchers it is advised that grown ups drink over five servings of coffee or 400 milligrams of caffeine every day. Should you be expecting a baby it is best to hold back on caffeine and not drink in excess of three servings of coffee per day and children shouldn't have caffeine at all.
As a guide, youngsters can tolerate 2.5 milligrams of caffeine per. kg body weight per day. This means 75 milligrams of caffeine, if the child weighs 30 pounds.
