Caffeine at the age of two?

Toddlers and Tiaras, a hit show on TLC, recently aired an episode featuring a two year old pageant star’s preparations for a big pageant. During this episode, the two year old’s mother can be seen feeding the child caffeine in order to help her prepare. She goes on to explain how this has been the child’s daily routine since the age of nine months.
Should this mother be taken away her rights to care for this child?
I believe that a social worker should definetly investigate into this situation. This mother does not seem responsible enough to care for a young child.
That being said, one can also argue that this mother is feeding her child the same amounts of sugar as any other parent does, just in a different form. Her child also seems to perform better with the caffeine.
Do you believe what this mother is doing to her child is right?
