An array of healthy fruit is perfect for children’s parties. We would recommend having fruit that is easy to pickup such as watermelon, strawberries, berries and oranges. Apples are also delicious and easy but need to be cut close to the party time so they don’t brown.
If you have a fruit platter, also bring along some tongs so that it is easy for the children to be served. Fruit cups are also a super easy option where you can pre serve the watermelon, berries etc into individual cups. The only downside of fruit cups, some children don’t like certain fruits so it goes to waste. We find children eat more fruit when the platter offers a variety for them to suit their own preferences.
Children love cheese and vegemite! Ham can also be a popular option for non-vegetarians. If you are looking for the safest crowd pleaser, we would recommend half vegemite and half cheese. Avoid anything such as peanut butter or nutella due to allergies.
Adding a sushi platter can be a great addition to your food choice. We recommend baby sushi rolls as they are easy for the children to eat in one go. When we order sushi, we always ask to avoid raw fish (especially on hot days). Cooked tuna, cooked chicken, avocado and vegetables are excellent options.
If you want to put on some warm food, consider serving this towards the end of the party during facepaint time. The most popular warm food options for children are chicken nuggets or sausage rolls. They are not as messy as meat pies!
Adults love healthy easy options too!
Sandwiches and wraps are always crowd pleasers.
The most popular sandwich options for adults include:
– Cucumber and cream cheese with dill
– Chicken and mayonnaise
– Herbed egg
The great thing about sandwiches or wraps is that they are easy to pickup and eat quickly.
A cheese board is always a crowd pleaser. Vegetables, crackers, cured meats and beautiful cheese are always a hit. Add some colour to the board with some fruits or fresh berries. If you are doing the cheese board yourself, you might like to consider bringing serviettes, cheese knives and tooth picks to make it easy to devour!
