These yummy bites are enough to crown you the best party host on the block
On the face of it, planning the food menu for your kid’s birthday party may seem like an easy task, but as experts and many parents will tell you, choosing the right food is downright tricky. This is arguably one of the most difficult tasks on your “to-do” list.
It’s good to plan a detailed schedule ahead, so you know what you can have ready ahead of time and how long everything can take. Ask your partner and anybody else available to help with the work, so you aren’t stuck in the kitchen for the entire party.
There are mainly three important things to consider while creating your child’s birthday party menu.
- Keep the menu as healthy as possible.
- Prepare food that doesn’t stain clothing.
- Factor in dietary restrictions and food allergies.
Here are some party food and fun dessert ideas that take into consideration the above, and most importantly, are sure to be kid-pleasers.
Mac and Cheese
A simple dish and sure-fire crowd pleaser, mac and cheese can be made as a healthy combination dish for a kids’ party by using “freshly grated cheddar cheese, whole wheat elbow macaroni, low calorie and sodium butter and skim milk.”
Mini Grilled Cheese
Save on your cooking time by buttering and toasting your bread sticks before the party starts. It is then only a matter of just placing some cheese on the bread and pop the sandwiches in the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese when the kids arrive.
The little ones are always fanatic about pizza. This twist on the old favorite makes for an easy, fast and simple to clean-up dish. And it makes pizza more fun (if that’s ever possible!).
Corn Dog Muffins
Always popular with children, this greasy fried food isn’t best suited for their health though. Try out a creative spin on the tried-and-true corn dogs by turning them into muffins. If you are on the lookout for a substitute, turkey sausages make for a great healthier alternative.
Homemade oatmeal cream pies are the perfect birthday treats. A little messy, but a sure hit with the kids. And what’s more, the white filling is a lot easier to clean up than colored frosting.
Caramel Apple Sticks
Slice up apples into chunks, and place them on sticks after removing the seeds. Drizzle some chocolate sauce after dipping the apple slices into caramel.
Why not go for a fun “Birthday Muffin Contest” or even “Decorate the Cake!” You can supply decorating products like colorful icing and sprinkles. Equip the children with bibs and have parents work side by side with them.
Sundaes – Sweet dessert rice
If you are trying to do away with ice cream, it’s recommended to swap out the traditional lollies for Rice Dream Sundaes. A healthy alternative that’s not at all hard to convince the kiddos to eat!
