Hosting a kids party can be a big job and with restrictions being eased we can start thinking about having parties again! Thinking up menu ideas that will appease both children and their parents can be tricky. Here is a list of our five top party snack ideas that are both super fun and super healthy!
- Homemade Popsicles
You will need to combine 1 cup of a fruit (fresh or frozen), half a cup of yoghurt and 2 tablespoons of water into a blender. Once blended into a smooth consistency, pour into popsicle moulds and let freeze for 8-10 hours. There are many great combinations of fruit and yoghurt to choose from so get creative!
- Traffic Light Sandwhiches
You will need sliced bread, lettuce, cheese and tomato. Cut three circles into the top slice of bread going vertically down (a cookie cutter will make this easier). On the bottom slice, put your tomato on top, cheese in the middle, and lettuce on the bottom. Put the holey slice on top and you have a fun traffic light sandwhich!
- Zucchini Chips
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Cut zucchini into fry-sized pieces and spread them evenly onto a baking tray (using baking paper to prevent sticking). Spray with olive oil and sprinkle with bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Watermelon Pizza
A little bit finicky but super fun! Simply cut a whole water melon into large round slices, these will be your pizza bases. Cut out some small holes where you can squeeze in some fun ingredients. Some yummy suggestions are berries, pineapple pieces and strawberries. You can even just sit them on top if you like and add a yoghurt drizzle on top. Once it’s all assembled, cut into six pizza slices and serve.
- Fruit Kebabs
Let’s be honest, anything on a stick is going to be a hit, right? Strawberries, grapes, apple, watermelon are all great choices for a fruit kebab. Adding some cheese can turn this snack into the perfect combination of fruit and protein making them exceptionally fun and healthy!
