  • Pizza is a big thing with kids. Go with what they like.

  • at my daughters 5th i just did cheese n crackers, and then had a fruit n veggie platter..mainly because we had it at the recreation centre, so i knew theyd rather be playing rather than sitting down and eating..and if they got hungry they could stop for a minute and grab n go. also had juice boxes and water available..

    what about pizza, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, mac n cheese..something easy, and most kids love those things

  • What is the theme of your party? We always do theme food with ours. For simple kid food, I would go with finger foods that your child likes. Pigs in a blanket made with mini hot dogs, a veggie tray (my kids love these), apple slices, pizza bites, chips and dip, etc.

  • Mini sausages in Pilsbury refrigerated biscuits. The kids can grab & go. simply supply ketchuo or mustard for dipping.
    Goldfish crackers, CHEESE-IT'S and RITZ crackers for a side tray with cheese & apple slices.GRAHAM CRACKERS the cinnamon sugar ones are tasty treats.

  • Grapes, freeze a bunch of seedless grapes. kids love them! Mix up a batch of CHEX CEREAL MIX just for the kids: use honey & butter for the sauce to flavor & lightly coat the cereals as you bake.
