Coffee in Children

Coffee is very popular. We often see that the people who are drinking it are adults and that children only drink milk. This is where another Filipino belief arose from. Most people in the Philippines say that coffees are only for adults and children should not be given the chance to drink it until they grow up. They believe that it can make the child’s mental capacity to be slower and smaller, the growth to become slow, and the physical appearance to look and become older. Aside from the bitter taste of coffees which children   do not like, because of the previously mentioned belief, a lot of children are discouraged to have or taste coffee.
