7 Unique Kids’ Party Food Ideas

Every year, you and your kids are probably invited to dozens of parties, and you may even be throwing a few get-togethers of your own.

Whether your next event is for a birthday, Christmas, or another special event, these unique party foods will make your party one of the most memorable ones of the year.                                                                                                  

1: Dip Mix Platter

Most party hosts know that having a tray of vegetables with some type of dips is a great party food to include in your planning, but I suggest taking that one step further when throwing a kids’ party!

Rather than trying to find big foods that everyone will like, make even more small dip platters that include some of the following:

● Nutella dip with fruit, pretzels, and more

● Avocado dip with crackers

● Hummus dip with pita

● Fruit pops with vanilla and chocolate sauces

● … and more!

Depending on the age of the kids, choose appropriate and dippable foods. By having a variety of dipping platters, every child will be able to find something they enjoy eating at your party.

2: Party Themed Pretzel Snacks

A fantastic dessert snack to make for your next kids’ party is a chocolate pretzel snack.

Here’s what you need:

● Hershey Kiss chocolates

● Pretzels (preferably the square, lattice ones)

● M&M’s or another small candy

● A sheet pan

If you can, buy the small candies in colors that match the theme of your party.

Here’s how to make these treats:

1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees

2. Lay out pretzels on cookie sheet

3. Place one Hershey chocolate on the middle of each pretzel

4. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes, until chocolate gets soft

5. Remove from oven

6. Quickly press a mini candy into the chocolate

7. Allow to firm up

8. Enjoy!

That’s all it takes to have this sweet treat at your next affair.

3: Decorate-Your-Own Juice Boxes

In addition to needing food ideas, most parents also need more activity ideas for a kids’ party. This special treat provides on both fronts!

Cut out a piece of white construction paper that will fit over the front of the juice box. Using tape or glue, attach the paper so the front of the juice box is plain. Then, use a sticky name label to mark which juice box is for which child.

In the party area, set up a table with some markers and crayons, taking care not to leave anything too sharp at the table.

When the kids arrive, tell them to find the juice box with their name tag on it at the table and get decorating!

This fun activity and food combination is a great thing to do while waiting for all of your guests to arrive because it keeps everyone focused, occupied, and well hydrated.

4: Animal Sugar Cookies

Even as kids get older, they will always have their favourite animals!

If you’re throwing a birthday party for your child’s special day, make some sugar cookies in the shape of their favourite animals. This doesn’t have to be hard to do. Simply make some sugar cookie dough, refrigerate it for at least two hours, and then use a cookie cutter in the shape of the animal to get things in shape.

Whether you choose to decorate with details or just add a simple icing on top, the kids at your next party will have a great time with their zoo-like treats!

5: Veggie Mac’n Cheese Cups

While you want your kids to enjoy their party, they need to eat more than just cake and sweets all day, so this snack food will help round out their diet.

Since most children love to eat macaroni and cheese, this treat starts with that. Using a mini muffin pan, make “mac’n cheese” bites for your kids. Halfway through baking them, however, add some green vegetables on the top and do a quick dusting of parmesan cheese.

At your party, kids will be so excited about the macaroni and cheese that they will not object to also eating a little bit of broccoli. It’s a win-win situation for everyone!

6: Lightly Fried Vegetable

Rather than just serving crisps and chips, try creating some lightly fried vegetables as a healthy alternative for your next kids’ party.

First, cut your vegetables of choice (I recommend carrots and sweet potatoes) into long, thin pieces. Then, put them on a baking tray and drizzle them with:

● Olive oil

● Rosemary

● Garlic powder

Use your hands to toss them. Then, bake them in a 350-degree oven for up to 15 minutes or until crispy. Each vegetable might get crispy in a different amount of time, so be sure to check them individually.

Now you can serve healthy, homemade fried snacks at your next kids’ party!
