  • I had mostly adults at my son's first birthday party but there were a few kids too. I got some juice for the older kids and had an assortment of appies and some chips and little snacks for everyone.

    You could get animal crackers, goldfish crackers, veggies and dip, little sandwiches, cookies etc...
    You can get pretty much everything without sugar these days. It might take a little searching but they're out there.

  • it was all simple stuff. of course the bday cake, we had soda, sweet tea and fruit punch, chips and dip, a platter of apple slices w/ caramel dip (HUGE hit) and veggies and dip.

  • With in the next two months you want to think about getting your DD on juice drinking out of a cup. Also you can introduce finger foods to her. My DD was eating sliced up ham, turkey, cheese, Grilled cheese, gold fish, chewy cereal bars. You can do grilled cheese for the party. You should think about introducing different things to her you don't want her to be a picky eater.

  • She has been introduced to many meals anon,she also has been on a cup since she was 7 months,and juice is not needed in her diet all it is,is sugar and food coloring So I think im fine with keeping that out of her diet,thanks for the advice though.
