New research shows kids are ditching sodas and switching to sweetened coffee drinks and energy drinks to get their caffeine.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, in 1999 62 percent of teenagers said soda was their primary source of caffeine.

By 2010, that figure plummeted to 38 percent.

By comparison, 10-percent of kids drank coffee in 1999 and by 2010 it was 24-percent.
