    My kid’s favourite (she is a girl) is what we call a “princess hot chocolate” = a short steamed milk with raspberry. You could choose any flavour, of course. Whipped cream is a fav, but if I ask for extra foam she is just as happy, scooping up the foam with a little green “spoon”.

      It is decidedly not a healthy Starbucks drink, but the princess hot chocolate certainly sounds delicious. Thanks for commenting!

      When it comes to kids, the kids’ hot chocolate is normally the favorite. It has a fair amount of sugar, but it is extremely popular with children. Otherwise, you may be able to find specialty drinks at different points in the year. The smoothies are fairly healthy and offer a summertime boost in fiber and nutrients. During the fall and winter, children often get caramel apple ciders or peppermint hot chocolates. Your choice of a drink depends entirely on what the kid wants, how healthy you want it to be and the seasonal beverage offerings.

      These generally mean a short or a tall. When you are actually in a Starbucks, they have nutritional information for each size. If you are ordering a new drink, you should always check this out–some of the drinks contain more than 500 calories!
