The Seimas of Lithuania adopted the amendments last spring, initiated by Labour Party MP Dangutė Mikutienė, chairwoman of the parliamentary Committee on Health.

Sellers of energy drinks to under-18s will face a fine of 200-400 litas (EUR 58-115). Other people would be fined 50-200 litas for buying an energy drink for a minor.
