Food4Patriots Responds to Increase in Caffeinated Foods with Suggestion to Stockpile Healthy Food

Share Article

With the recent intentional increase in caffeine content in a number of foods, the Food and Drug Administration is now investigating the safety of added caffeine and its effects on children. Food4Patriots recommends that families avoid those types of foods and stockpile healthy non-perishables.

Food4Patriots believes that children and adolescents should not be the targets of caffeinated products.

According to the Huffington Post, a number of companies are increasing their offerings of foods – including some that seem to target children – that have caffeine added to them. An example is a new product, Alert Energy Gum from Wrigley, which includes as much caffeine as one-half cup of coffee in a single piece.

Food4Patriots, the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, believes that children and adolescents should not be the targets of caffeinated products.

In recent years, companies have added caffeine to a wide variety of products, including candy, nuts, jelly beans, chips, trail mix and others, and have used social media strategies to promote these “energy” foods.

Food4Patriots will be launching soon to help people prepare for emergency situations. Some of the foods that will be included in Food4Patriots’ 72-Hour Emergency Kit, 4-Week Emergency Kit and 3-Month Emergency Kit are granola, oatmeal, potato soup, chicken rice, chili, beef stroganoff and minestrone.

Those who order one of the Food4Patriots Emergency Kits will also receive four reports: “The Top 10 Items Sold Out After Crisis,” “The Water Survival Guide,” “The Survival Garden Guide” and “How to Cut Your Grocery Bills in Half.”

One of the ways to keep your food supply healthy is to grow some of your own food. With the gardening season finally coming around, check out this Power4Patriots blog post to learn how to keep your garden’s soil as healthy as possible.
