Welcome to the world of baby chino and baby chino cups! Find out what a baby chino is, why they are gaining in popularity, and (more importantly)... How to get your hands on the perfect Cup for your little one!
Whether you call it a “baby chino”, "babycino," or “babyccino” there's no denying that this little cuppa has become a beloved part of cafe culture - but what is it? This cappacino-look-alike drink is made up of warmed milk which is frothed, often served with a sprinkle of cinnamon or chocolate powder on top. While it may seem like a modern invention, its history surprisingly dates back a couple of decades!
This drink first became popular in Italy in the 1990s. At the time, Italian parents would often take their children to cafes for an espresso or cappuccino. However, these strong, bitter drinks were not suitable for young palates. To accommodate their littler customers, cafes began offering a small creative cup of warm milk with a dusting of cocoa powder. This new drink in little cups quickly became a hit with children, and the baby chino was born.
A staple at breakfasts and brunches, you’ll spot children sipping from baby chino cups while their carers enjoy a slightly larger morning coffee from their own reusable cups. Parents are increasingly favouring these cups of frothy milk, not just for their novelty value, but as a, kid friendly menu option.
Parents are opting for them as an alternative to sugary drinks and other unhealthy treats. They’re also perfect for lactose free kids! Often available in cows, oat, almond or coconut milk.
