Kids party food ideas

 

Pizza Shapes

 
  • Using pizza dough or a pre-made/shop-bought pizza base cut out your chosen shapes with a cookie cutter.
 
  • Paint on a thin layer of tomato paste.
 
  • Add thin slices of tomato and top with grated cheese.
 
  • Bake at 180°C for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese bubbles.
 
  • You can also add other toppings cut into small pieces such as ham, pineapple, salami, basil etc.
 

Sandwiches

 
  • Make a variety of sandwiches with the kids' favourite ingredients and cut them into different shapes with a cookie cutter.
 

Fruit Skewers

 
  • Place a selection of fruits on a skewer.
 
  • Another option is to place on a piece of fruit followed by a marshmallow, then alternate until the skewer is full.
 

Fairy Bread

 
  • Cut bread into different shapes using cooker cutters, butter bread and sprinkle over hundreds and thousands.
 

Chocolate Crackles

 
  • Ingredients: 500g milk chocolate;  4 cups Ricies or Cornfakes; cupcake cases.
 
  • Melt the chocolate.
 
  • Add the Ricies/Cornflakes 1 cup at a time and stir, making sure they're all covered with chocolate.
 
  • Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases then place in the fridge to set.
 
  • These can be transformed into spiders with liquorice for legs and Smarties for eyes. Simply mix water & icing sugar together to make the glue to stick the legs & eyes on.
 

Racing Cars

 
  • Ingredients: 1 finger biscuit, 4 Smarties for the wheels, 1 jelly baby head for the driver.
 
  • Mix water & icing sugar together to make the glue to stick the wheels & the driver onto the finger biscuit car!
 

Lucky Dip

 
  • For a yummy treat combine your child’s favourite lollies in a large bowl (M&M's, chocolate peanuts, Jaffas, jelly beans, marshmallows, Pineapple Lumps, raisins, dried fruit etc) and let your guests scoop some out to snack on.
 
  • You could also scoop the sweets out and sprinkle them on top of some ice cream as a dessert.
 

Jelly Faces

 
  • Dissolve jelly as per instructions on the packet and put cupcake cases into cupcake/muffin tins.
 
  • Pour the jelly solution into the cupcake cases and refrigerate until set.
 
  • Once set, use an assortment of lollies to make the face; big M&M's for eyes, small M&M's for the nose and a banana lolly for the mouth.
 

Strawberry Mice

 
  • Ingredients: fresh strawberries; mini chocolate chips; black decorators' icing; almond slivers; toothpick; red lace liquorice.
 
  • For each mouse, slice a small section from the side of a strawberry so it sits flat.
 
  • Press a mini chocolate chip into the tip for a nose, using a small dab of icing to secure it in place, if needed.
 
  • Add icing eyes and stick 2 almond slivers into the top of the berry for ears.
 
  • For a tail, use a toothpick to carve a small hole in the back of the berry and push the end of a piece of licorice lace into the hole.
 

Healthy snacks

 
  • Think about perhaps including a range of healthy snacks at the party too. From popcorn to carrot sticks, fresh fruit to cheese slices, check out these healthy snack ideas.


Drink ideas

 
  • Not keen to serve fizzy drinks, but want something other than water or milk for the party? Try making some of these healthy drinks instead.
