Aldi claim's they will become the first retailer in Ireland to ban the sale of high-caffeine energy drinks to Under 16s. 

Anyone who buys soft drinks which contains more than 150mg of caffeine per litre will need to prove their age.

Finbar McCarthy, Group Buying Director at Aldi Ireland, said:

"We are introducing this age restriction in response to growing concern about the consumption of energy drinks among young people."

It's due to come into affect in all Aldi stores in Ireland and the UK from the 1st of March.
