Kids Party Food ideas
It really should be emphasised that this needn’t be an area to stress over. Don’t think you have to prepare a banquet, as often kids aren’t all that interested in the food anyway. It can be infuriating for parents after all the expense and work they put in, but after 10 minutes of refuelling, kids are often more eager to get back to having fun and playing games.
You do still want them to eat something though so try to keep all the food bite size. It’s so much easier and kids are far more likely to eat the food than if you give them a full meal. We see parents giving out whole plates of fish and chips or spaghetti at kids parties and they hardly touch it.
General ideas you might like are:
Savoury: Crisps, sausage rolls, pizza or sandwhiches
Veg: cherry tomatoes, cucumber stick (maybe have some dips to go with it)
Fruit: strawberries, grapes, chopped up banana), kiwi slices, pineapple chunks, etc.
Sweets and sugar options: Cupcakes, chocolate buttons or chocolate M&Ms, skittles, maltesers, biscuits, etc…
Desserts: jelly, choc ices, lolly pops,
Birthday cake! – Kind of goes without saying doesn’t it.
Drinks: Any juice is fine – orange, apple, ribena – juice cartons make life a lot simpler for you.
