  1. Oh my God don’t ask Quora. Ask your physician/pediatrician and your parents. Everyone’s body and the way caffeine effects it is different. I’ve drank coffee every day since et I was 11. I have ADHD so it calms me down. Don’t get advice from this hellhole when it comes to your body.

  2. Personally I don’t think it’s truly ideal, no.
    Coffee drains you of a few vital minerals, and a growing body really doesn’t need such a stimulant IMO.
    Kids have boundless energy anyway. I’d switch to high quality tea such as chinese/Taiwanese oolongs or thereabouts. That’s all you’d ever need IME.
    Save the coffee for special occasions and don’t start a dependency for no good reason.
    Hope that helps your decision in some way.

  3. I will answer this. Children in general should not drink Coffee. I was brought up to believe that children’s growth would be stunted. Because children at their young Age should not have anything that might alter their growth system. To add, they should ‘nt Have anything That would be put into question as to whether they’re growing properly give them every chance to grow up normal healthy and straight and right.

  4. No, it is not, i am 13, i got addicted to tea a lot, i want tea at morning and evening. that is the reason why i got sleep problems, and sleep really late (12AM – 2PM) . coffee has more caffeine than tea, so it might make situations worse, so please don’t drink coffee daily at this age.

  5. Yes. In Europe, they let young kids have cafe au lait, which is half coffee and half hot milk. Coffee may even have some health benefits, but all things in moderation.
    In America, kids get plenty of caffeine from Mountain Dew, Coke, and energy drinks, which are far worse than coffee.

  6. If it’s decaffeinated. Otherwise, coffee contains caffeine which is an addictive drug that can have many negative side effects. 13 is such a young age to be developing an addiction like that. Let the kid grow up a bit first.

  7. No it’s not. You don’t want to become a coffee addict at that age. Coffee can disrupt your sleep patterns and it can also disrupt your digestion, causing stomach problems in a lot of people, etc. I don’t think anyone really knows what happens to child coffee and caffeine addicts in the long run, because things like energy drinks did not exist a couple decades ago, and children did not drink coffee. That’s for a reason. If you do become a coffee addict at age 13, you’re sort of being a “lab rat” to see what the side effects are.

  8. NON-PROFESSIONAL OPINION
    I don’t think it’d be bad in small amounts. Like if he/she had a small cup in the morning, or something that’s mixed, like half-milk half-coffee.
    I’d advise them to limit it mostly because it’s addicting and they’re young. I still think it’s better for them to drink than any soda or juice or anything else flooded with sugar. At least coffee is shown to have many health benefits over time. Sugar is basically poison to our body over time. So there’s that.

  9. I used to drink coffee when I was thirteen but I don’t recommend it. It threw my sleeping patterns over edge and I became dependent on it to stay awake and function. It was a evil circle. Drinking coffee made it hard to sleep, then I had to drink coffee to stay awake because of bad sleep.
    On top of that, it you consume too much caffeine before puberty (humans usually have plenty of energy before hormones kick in) you might have to deal with major consequences. In Norway, 12–14 year olds have fainted and been rushed to hospitals because they’ve consumed more caffeine than their bodies can tolerate. If you stick to one cup, it’s fine, but please go a day without it just to avoid addiction.

  10. At that age that child immune system and Organs has not completely build up to the standard like adults. Even when you go to hospital they have medicine for children below 18 years old. If any coffees company tell you they have some for children below 18 years old then they are liar because is not even safe for adults how much more for children. So think about it before you start making your child develop some heart, Kidney and liver disease. Let your child drinks some juice and water it’s much better then coffee.

  11. A “normal”, healthy, 13 year old human?
    Sure, why not? It’s a nice hot drink that may or may not have milk in it (ewww!) and sugar (ewww!) and caffeine too.
    Name one drink that 13 year old is drinking which doesn’t have two of those ingredients. Diet caffeine-free coke, you say? You know different 13 year olds to me.
    Seriously, I think this is a concern peculiar to the USA. I’m not looking, but I’m going to guess that’s where the questioner lives.
    Because nobody else cares.

  12. I’m pretty sure that caffeine for someone that young might damage their liver as well as cause other health problems such as increased blood pressure, headaches, worn out adrenals, and it can also cause nervousness, hyperactivity but I think it should be ok if you let them have a bit every once in a while. Children have lower caffeine tolerances than adults so they can’t have as much as adults. Lots of caffeine can cause loss of appetite as well as caffeine addiction which brings on a whole lot more problems

  13. It depends on the amount of caffeine, sugar, and fat in the coffee. Check with the child’s pediatrician to see if they have concerns.
    More importantly—why is the child drinking coffee daily, and when is the coffee being consumed? 13-year-olds are at a peak developmental stage and require a lot of sleep, so be sure the child isn’t relying on coffee in the morning to mask fatigue and to meet a grueling school schedule, or drinking any caffeinated beverages shortly before bedtime.

  15. Caffeine does some weird things to the body; at 13, a person is just entering the phase where the body is going through a lot of changes. I would recommend following both your doctor’s guide and your parents’ preferences for you at this time.
    Also be warned, caffeine can be addictive, just like drugs. I don’t recommend getting hooked on that much coffee so soon in your life.

  16. There’s no alcohol, but the more coffee you drink, the more caffeine. I don’t think, daily is a good idea, but compared to beer, it’s ok.

  17. No,

    Drink tea.
    Cheers
