Driving in the land of hot drinks and dairy products

Do your driving guidelines prescribe hot drinks and warn you of the dangers of dairy products?

Excerpts from the UK Highway Code:

From #91 Driving when tired
"the most effective ways to counter sleepiness are to drink, for example, two cups of caffeinated coffee and to take a short nap (at least 15 minutes)"

From #206 Drive slowly and carefully when
"passing parked vehicles, especially ice cream vans; children are more interested in ice cream than traffic and may run into the road unexpectedly".

From #224 Electric vehicles
"Be careful of electric vehicles such as milk floats and trams."

From #228 Driving in icy and adverse weather
"Take an emergency kit of de-icer and ice scraper, torch, warm clothing and boots, first aid kit, jump leads and a shovel, together with a warm drink* and emergency food in case you get stuck or your vehicle breaks down."

* Evidence that these guidelines are only intended for trips of limited duration....
