Throwing a kids birthday party is something that is part of the job description of being a parent. It is expected of them to make a birthday party that will make their children feel special on their big day.
Sometimes there is so much to think about between all of the presents, activities, and providing entertainment that the last thing that you want to deal with is planning a meal for a bunch of kids with various food aversions. Some are so addicted to having things their way when it comes mealtime that they are unwilling to bend when it comes to trying new things. Therefore, choosing some quick and easy which everyone will like is the best way to make sure that you have the least amount of stress possible. Here are some of the best choices which everyone is sure to enjoy.
Pizza is something that can either be bought frozen and simply popped into the oven, or you can order it for delivery. Either way is incredibly stress-free, and you’ll find that the cleanup is minimal as you don’t even need silverware or plates.
Pizza fills kids bellies up and seems to be something exciting for everyone once it comes out. Not only do kids love pizza, but the adults at your party can also enjoy.
Sandwiches are something which are quick and offer minimal cleanup. You can offer a variety of sandwiches to make sure that everyone finds one that they like. From peanut butter and jelly to ham. You can lay it all out on a platter and let everyone choose what they want with minimal mess.
For even less fuss, you can purchase subway sandwiches premade. This way you don’t even have to worry about having to deal with any ingredients. Simply slice and serve.
Nuggets and Fries
Nuggets and fries are simple and something that most kids like. You can throw them in the oven and they come out in less than 30 minutes. Because of the minimal cleanup, since they don’t require silverware, they are incredibly convenient.
For a healthier spin on this meal, you could opt for sweet potato fries, and get all organic chicken nuggets with whole grain breading.
Everyone loves a birthday cake, but let’s face it, you find yourself with plates everywhere with half eaten slices, and then you have to store a huge cake in your fridge for a week afterward.
Cupcakes are a great alternative to a big cake since it’s like a personal cake for everyone on their own. They are small portions so you are less likely to have half eaten pieces scattered all over the place, and you don’t need a plate!
