Kids birthday parties are becoming bigger than Ben-Hur, with extravagant venues, entertainment and cakes that would put most weddings to shame. But, when it comes to kid’s birthday party finger food, keeping it simple is your best bet for pleasing your hungry crowd of party goers. There are just four simple things you need to consider for kids’ birthday party finger food, to impress even the fussiest of little eaters.
Kids aren’t likely to scrutinise the nutritional value of the finger food at a birthday party, but the parents might. Putting something healthy on the menu will ensure everyone is catered for. You cannot go past a colourful platter of seasonable fruits, and a selection of classic sandwiches, such as ham and cheese, which are sure to please guests of all ages. If parents are sticking around, gourmet baguettes add a bit of class to the spread, while being easy to eat while running around after kids.
It goes without saying there should be cake at a birthday party but adding a selection of bite-sized sweet treats is sure to be a popular choice with kids and adults alike. Rocky Road Slice and Chocolate Brownies are always a crowd pleaser with kids, while adults might prefer Vanilla, Apple, or Cheesecake slice with a cup of tea.
Sausage sizzles are always a winner with kids, if you have time between party games and entertaining guests to jump on the bbq. But, if you want to keep it simple, you can’t go past classic favourites like party pies and party sausages. We may be biased, but seriously, what kid doesn’t love a pie or sausage roll with a squirt of sauce?
Who has time to sit around at a kid’s party? Certainly not the kids, and probably not the adults either. The best thing about party finger food is it’s easy to eat on the go. So, whatever you choose to put on the menu, make sure it comes in single serves for optimal transportability.
