Kids are pretty limited in life until they reach a certain age. Not only are they told what tie to go to bed every night and what movies or TV shows they can't watch, they're also told what they can and cannot eat. Everyone has been there, and while it may seem like kids have it tough, you might actually be a little jealous when you see what their exclusive kid status can get them at restaurants.  

When heading out to enjoy a meal or treat from one of your favorite restaurants, be sure to keep these secret menu items for kids in mind.

    One thing that kids love is candy. Whether it is something chocolate, fruity or sour, if they can get their hands on it, it make their day.

  • Cotton Candy Frappucino

    Starbucks has come up with a lot of great frappucino flavors over the years. It may not actually contain cotton candy, but whether an adult or a child were to try this, they would be fooled into thinking it did.

  • Bubble Gum Frappuccino

    As kids, most people are told not to swallow their bubble gum. You may be tempted to, but you don't. When you order your kid a Bubble Gum Frappucino, they will probably find it exciting to be drinking bubble gum, but since there isn't any real gum in this sweet treat, you don't have to worry about telling them not to swallow it.

  • Oreo Frappucino

    Another fun frappucino that your little can try is an Oreo Frappucino. Oreos are great on their own, but when you blend them together to make a frappucino, they taste even better and are a lot more fun to consume. There are two different ways that this frapp can be prepared, so be sure to specify whether your kid is chocolate lover or creme lover when ordering.

  • Oatmeal Raisin McFlurry (Snack Size)

    Most people are aware of the types of McFlurrys available at McDonalds. Since they're all full of some of your kid's favorite sugary candy, like M&Ms and Reese's Cups, it may not be the healthiest option for them. If you're concerned about sugar intake, the Oatmeal Raisin McFlurry is the perfect solution.

  • Grilled Cheese

    Nuggets and burgers can get boring if you eat McDonald's frequently, so if your son or daughter wants to mix it up, they can try a grilled cheese next time you take them to McDonald's for lunch or dinner. It just two burger buns with cheese, but it tastes great and will give your kid a break from their usual order.

    If you are a lover of Chipotle. Or have just been there once, you probably noticed that they really only serve their tacos in threes.
