HEALTHY BUT SO YUMMY KIDS PARTY FOOD ! Yes it is possible !!! 

Kids Birthday Parties can be fun, yummy and … Heathy ! Yes they can ! There is no need to buy only junk food or to have everything with added sugar.

A few weeks ago I organised Chloe’s 1st birthday party. I wanted a sugar free party, why? Because most of Chloe’s guests were 1 year old or under and because I haven’t given Chloe sugar before. I have gathered lots of different ideas about kids party food from Pinterest and I have  adapted some sugary recipes so that they are sugar free.

This is what I have prepared for the party


ICE CREAM CONES 

Ice Cream Cones dipped in blended blueberry and coconut.  You can make so many different versions of it, depending on the age of the kids.

– chocolate and nuts

– chocolate and coconut

– blueberry and cornflakes

– melted marshmallows

ICE CREAM CONES WITH FRUITS

Stuff ice cream cones with any fruits you like. It’s sweet, healthy and it looks great.

SWEETCORN AND PEAS

STRAWBERRIES 
Strawberry is another great replacement to sweets/cookies. Because of its sweetness and vibrant colour kids (most of the kids) love them.

Dip strawberries in a soft cream and … coconut for a super healthy snack or in dark chocolate and then coconut if your kids are already eating chocolate.

You can also cut strawberry in half and put little dots of soft cream/ chocolate on top to make little ladybirds.

 

HEART AND STAR SHAPED SANDWICHES 

I know that this is a lot of work but I can do once a year for a special occasion. Just make your sandwiches and flatten them,  use biscuit cutter of a desired shape to cut them. Just remember that the sandwich needs to be very simple : soft cheese, cheese or ham are ideal.Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 20.46.23

MAGIC WAND

Kids love blueberries so get some of them on a toothpick, topped with a star cut out of watermelon and you have a magic wand ready. I have used bought toothpicks with gold stars on top of it.
