Icon24 It's a Myth: There's No Evidence That Coffee Stunts Kids' Growth

Modern concerns about coffee' health effects in the U.S. can be traced to C.W. Post, an 1800s-era food manufacturer most well known for pioneering the field of breakfast cereal. He also invented a grain-based breakfast beverage called Postum, advertised as a caffeine-free coffee alternative, that was popular through the 1960s (and is still in production).
More on the Postum ads here.
