Food for toddler's bday party?

I'm planning my 2 yr old's bday party & am renting a pavillion at a playground. I'm having the party from 2-4, so it'll be between lunch & dinner... so I'm hoping that'll save me some money on food. That being said, I still want SOMETHING there to munch on. I'm going to do chips & dip and maybe some fruit skewers.. any other ideas? It's outdoors, so nothing that desperately needs to stay cold. There will be a grill there, also.

THANKS!! :D

barbecue some chicken, hot dogs and hamburgers.  You just have to cut them up into bite size pieces for the little ones.  Have a kiddie snack table with like Cheerios, Goldfish crackers, Gerber Yogurt melts, animal crackers.  Meal wise--barbecue items mentioned above, corn on the cob, fruit salad, potato salad, macaroni salad (a large bowl with some ice or a cooler can hold these items.  Cupcakes or cake pops and a small smash cake just for your 2 yr old.

 i would say hotdogs also. have a table with goldfish crackers, miniature marshmallows and different snacks they can eat on there. i would do cupcakes as they can handle them better.

For a 2 year old I would do fruit like cut up strawberries, cantaloup, watermelon

Little sandwiches for the kids, hamburgers for the parents
