Our lovely clients often (rightly) assume it's up to them to arrange the food for the litle ones at parties- unless of course they're having it in a restaurant or a pub, where the venue will do it all for you. But sometimes, we get asked if we can recommend the best course of action (see what I did there?) for the simplest, relatively cheapest solution for a kids' party tea.
So, with that in mind, here's our essential 5 point guide to what to feed the kids at parties...
1) Firstly, be prepared. Don't use the party time to make the food, do as much as you can beforehand, so when the party is up and running, you can relax and even have a glass of bubbly. Nice.
2) Avoid cooking. If you're using a church hall, for example, chances are the cooking facilities aren't exactly state of the art. It might say 200 degrees, but it may end up being only 40, and then you have hungry kids and no pizza.
3) Keep the food simple: Sandwiches with a cheese and ham option, crisps and some carrot and cucumber sticks. Healthy too!
4) Use the theme to give the food a twist and make it more fun. Having an Explorer Dan and The Dinosaur Adventure Party, for example? Then cut the sandwiches in to dinosaur shapes or add some edible dinosuar shaped paper on top of some cup cakes.
5) Get food boxes for each child's food. This way, you can prepare everything in advance and just put them on the table ready to go. Plus, kids love the excitement of having their own box and wondering what will be inside- like opening a present.
There you go. We hope that helps!
