Kids Party Food Ideas


One of the most important parts of any children’s party is the food. Whether you are hosting or attending, your kids will be happy if they have a great meal to enjoy! The best way to make sure that your party is a success is of course to plan ahead. And when you think about it, planning ahead for the food might be one of the most important things on your list. To make things a little bit easier, we have compiled a list of some of the best party food ideas to try! All kids are sure to love it just as much as their parents.

Themed cupcakes

Every party has a different theme and sometimes the preparation is more difficult than you would think so make sure you allow enough time. One of the all-time favorite things to serve at a party are themed cupcakes. They are so simple to make, but they look like something you would order from a cake connoisseur. These can be served as appetisers or dessert! Just bake the cupcakes and buy some ready made toppings that match the colour and theme of the party and go creative.

Shaped biscuits

Want to serve something special but easy to make? Why not make biscuits in shapes! It’s easy and fun. They are perfect for any age group, and they’re so much more interesting than just regular old round shaped biscuits. You could try cutting out the shapes with cookie cutters, or just using a knife. And if you’re organising a construction themed party, our already famous digger biscuits will be just perfect! Download our easy to follow recipe with the cutter template and create your own digger-shaped biscuits! 


Who doesn’t love pizza? This all-time favourite is a winner for any party. Some kids can be picky eaters so pizza is a safe option to serve alongside other, more unusual options. Mini pizzas are perfect for little hands and are very easy to make. You can use a ready base or make it yourself using the classic recipe. It’s good to make a few different flavours, including meat-free and dairy free versions.

Coloured lemonade

Lemonade is another crowd pleaser and kids’ favourite so it’s probably the best drink option to serve at a party. However, it’s good to add a bit of a twist to its classic recipe just to make it a little more original. Use spirulina powder to turn the lemonade green or blue or swap the ice cubes for frozen raspberries or cherries for extra flavour, colour and texture!

Explore various ways to add an extra layer of fun to a kids’ party through delightful food options. Whether you choose to experiment with the ideas mentioned above or create your own unique twists, the key is to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all little party attendees.
