(Newser) – Coffee: It's not just for grownups anymore. Brooklyn's Park Slope neighborhood is offering toddlers their own "babyccinos"—and the kids are loving it, the New York Daily News reports. At a little more than $1 per cup, the hot frothed-milk drinks—which have no coffee in them—let kids "feel like they’re drinking the same drinks as the bigger people," says one barista. It's "kind of like when you see kids pushing a stroller," adds another. But don't expect babyccinos marked on every menu: In at least one cafe, you've got to be in the know to score a cup.
