When planning a birthday festivity for your kid, one of the important things to consider is the food you plan to serve. You should always go for foods that kids love to eat. Finger foods are a great choice for kids of all ages. They are always fun to eat, easy to make and not that messy. You do not need a plate, spoons or fork; kids pick them up from a bowl placed strategically.
You need kids to eat healthily. The best approach to this is to know the excellent time to present each food or snack. For example, you can prepare some veggies such as carrot and cucumber sticks and present them in a big bowl at the start of the party. Serve them when cutting the cake and be sure kids won’t touch them.
