If you’re hosting a birthday party for toddlers, chances are that you’re looking for quick and non-messy ways to feed the little ones. For toddlers’ birthday parties, you also have to take into account everyone’s preferences and allergies into account. And for these occasions, it’s best to stick to finger foods since the tots would be running around and would need more than birthday cake to keep their energy high.
So here are 5 food ideas to whip up easy and delicious birthday snacks for toddlers:
Welcome Drink – Chocolate Drink/Lemonade
Depending on the season, you can choose a welcome drink suitable for the weather. You can pour them into their little sippy cups for spill-free drinks. For a chocolate drink, simply mix together unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar and warm milk. While making the lemonade, it’s best to use water instead of soda and you can add jaljeera or mint for added flavour.
Now, who doesn’t love a potato wedge? An easier and chunkier version of the French fry, this is also healthier! Simply cut up the potato lengthwise to form thick chunks. Soak them in water for a while, before drying and shallow frying on a pan. Once it’s cooked through and crisp, season with salt and pepper and serve with ketchup.
Is there anything more versatile than a sandwich? You can use small slices of bread and cut them diagonally to create the perfect bite sized sandwiches for the kids. Use an assortment of fillings like mashed potatoes, boiled veggies, eggs and more and season well to make a yummy snack.
Toddlers love pizza and what better way to create healthy snacks than mixing the best of both worlds. Making bread pizza is made simpler with readymade pizza sauce. You can also substitute it with ketchup or tomato paste. Garnish with veggies of your choice and sprinkle some cheese and oregano before roasting on the tawa or popping it into the oven.
