Perhaps one of the most daunting aspects of early parenthood is coordinating a birthday party for your young child. Not only do you have to send out invitations and prepare treats for everyone, but you're effectively parenting several other children for a few hours - not exactly the ideal way to spend a Saturday afternoon! But it's all worthwhile when you watch your child's face light up with a big, bright smile. If you're not sure how best to go about keeping all of your young guests happy, feeding them is a great way to start. The right treats can keep kids satiated for hours! Here are a few of the best party foods for children.
Chocolate strawberries are hard to resist for both kids and adults alike. These delectable treats will have those children eating piles of fruit without even realizing it, and you and the other adults are going to have a tough time keeping your hands off. These often come with a variety of different coatings and toppings, so there'll be something for everyone, regardless of whether they like white or dark chocolate, almonds or chocolate chips.
Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies, so it stands to reason that everyone will adore a gigantic chocolate chip cookie cake! You can find these fairly easily by heading to your local Mrs. Fields Cookies, and these are definitely birthday delights that will astound the kids. Serve it warm with cold glasses of milk and watch the white mustaches form!
Naturally, there's nothing wrong with the classic chocolate cake. There's a reason it's endured for so long - it's practically universally beloved. There are plenty of recipes available online that can help you make a winning cake that the kids won't soon forget. Don't forget to serve ice cream with it!
For snacks, you may simply decide to go for something classic like potato chips, and there are plenty of sugar-free birthday gifts that will keep little mouths happy without any fuss. You'd be surprised how much kids enjoy eating cashews, for instance. It sounds silly, but give it a shot! Heck, you can even find mouth-watering truffles without any sugar in them. This is something that your fellow parents will love you for. They won't have to deal with any sugar rushes when they get home, and the kids are none the wiser!
