You can create a kids birthday party menu by choosing a theme. There are endless ways to make food fun and themed. Try creating a cake or edible centerpiece, using fun shapes and serving it on a platter. Dips are another fun way to make food fun. Children will love the chance to create something new. You can even make the food themselves! Here are a few ideas to get you started:
The size of the menu should depend on the number of children, the time of day and the number of servings. Plan for a large number of kids, particularly during meals. If you are planning a lunch party, make sure to prepare extra food. However, if the party is in the evening, it is not as important. Instead, serve snacks and cake for kids. You can also check whether any kids are allergic to any food items.
Make sure to ask the parents if any children are vegetarian. If your guests are vegetarian, include special food items that are suitable for them. Make sure to ask the parents if their child has a food allergy, and plan the menu accordingly. If the kids do not eat certain items, consider preparing homemade cakes for them. This way, you can control the ingredients and make it more nutritious. Remember, a healthy birthday party is more fun if there’s plenty of cake!
Choose finger foods that your children will love. Chips and salsa are classic kid’s favorites. You can serve them on a colorful plate decorated with a cartoon character. This will get your child excited for the party, and it will make healthy food fun! You can also encourage healthy eating habits with finger foods such as chicken fingers. If your child’s favorite cartoon character is a vegetarian, you can also serve her a healthy alternative to chicken fingers.
