So you are planning a kiddie birthday party. One thing you should pay a lot of attention on is the food that you will serve. It should be easy to make and something that both kids and adults will enjoy eating which could be a snack or a meal in itself.
If the venue of the party is at home, it is okay to serve food like friend chicken, barbecue, pizza, pasta, hotdogs, cookies and burgers. You can also serve some appetizers as well like chips, cookies, nachos, peanuts and pretzels.
Don’t forget to offer refreshments such as juice, water and soda. As for dessert, make sure there is plenty of ice cream and cake.
While some may consider this a light snack and not a meal, the kids and even the parents will keep coming back for more since it is free so chances are they won’t eat anything anymore by the time they go home.
Now most of these items you can buy from the store while there are others that you can do at home. Do you order it or make it? That is the question you have to ask yourself and this depends on how much time you have to do the work and your budget.
For parents who want to let the kids make their own meals, prepare a table with all the ingredients and then just let do what they want. This can work for those who are serving burgers and pizza so the kids can choose from the different toppings that are available.
But won’t buying too much from a restaurant or preparing it yourself lead to a lot of wastage? Not really because a lot of smart parents give some away the end of the party. They also finish the rest in the coming days by putting these treats as part of their kid’s lunches.
