My daughters birthday is in two weeks. There’s going to be older children, from 3- 15 years. I’m wanting healthier options. It’s in a park so it needs to be easy with no heating. I know fairy bread and chocolate crackles, but, I wanting other options too. We will be having BBQ meat, it’s more of when it’s being cooked, as there’s heaps of things for kids to do. But, let’s face it. Kids love to eat while at parties. Can anyone help me, please??

  • watermelon and other fruits are great, banana muffins are great too and if you use overripe bananas you wont need to add sugar

  • Cheese cubes, cut up sausages, boiled eggs, variety of nuts, veggie chips, roast chickpea and -broad beans. Cut up fruit / fruit skewers. Veggie pie’s, fritters veggies, meat, vegetarian options in puff pastry. Greek yoghurt with honey, served with fresh fruit etc. Homemade apple strudel, sweet potato brownie with raw chocolate avocado icing, so many healthier options possible.

  • Home made sausage rolls? Home made mince burgers

  • Chips, bics and dips. You could hear water on the BBQ for save lots or little boys. Salads. Kebabs, chicken ones, beef pork or vegetable ones.

  • Yes fruit salad cups, individual cups with veggie sticks and dip sound great!

  • What about a fruit platter, savoury scrolls, little sandwiches, pretzels.

  • I had my daughter’s first birthday at a park close to home. I cooked cheerios at home and brought them in an insulated container and we had mini hotdogs with sauce (and mustard for adults). You could make mini quiches in cupcake pans as they’re delicious hot or cold! Sandwiches are always winners! Homemade sausage rolls – Yum!

  • Fruit salad cups, individual cups with veggie sticks and dip, sushi/cold rolls, sandwiches.
    Check out my Pinterest board ‘Party Ideas – Food’ for more ideas :) Hope this helps!

  • Kids are so easy – lots of cut up fruit usually does the trick, and if you want to save yourself heaps of effort Coles or Woolies have the fruit platters already made.

  • Chocolate dipped bananas were a big hit at my sons 1st Birthday party. Fruit skewers are great. I also got a recipe off here for my daughters 1st Birthday party which was delicious, cheesecake strawberry bites!!

  • fruit salad
    banana pancakes

  • kids love fruit these days, so maybe a platter of fruit, or fruit on bamboo sticks.

  • Create these little men using carrots, tomatoes, olives, celery. You could use cheese if you want..

  • Fruit kebabs, cheese squares, carrot sticks, cucumber etc with dip
