Most Popular Kid’s Party Foods

Donuts – Donuts galore. Krispy Kreme’s, cinnamon donuts and apple donuts (read our healthy donuts blog here). We LOVE the idea of decorating your own donut; provide your guests with plain donuts, icing, lollies, sprinkles and choc and caramel sauce and set up a ‘donut decorating station’.


Choc Top Marshmallows – Dip your marshmallows into melted chocolate and cover in sprinkles. Very sweet but very lovely and usually presented on a skewer. Featuring at lots of parties for our youngest clients. Try this idea with banana pieces.


Pizza Delivery – That’s right! Pizza Hut, Domino’s, Pizza Capers, you name it, we’ve seen it and we’ve seen it work incredibly well and conveniently for lots of parents. Order delivery for a time that suits you and your entertainer and let Pizza Hut take care of the food while you enjoy the party!


Popcorn – Fresh popped and portioned into kid sized servings – presented in fun cardboard boxes, cute paper bags or plastic bowls. The kids love the smell of popcorn cooking, but this can easily be prepared before guests arrive. Set and forget.


Cupcakes – So cute! So yummy! And the perfect accompaniment to an amazing dessert table set up. You could always do a ‘decorate your own cupcake’ stand similar to the donuts above ^. Kids love the novelty of personalisation and can really show off their creativity.


Fruit Skewers – Bite sized pieces of fruit on skewers. This one works best in summer when all of the best fruits are in season. And that is our top tip; use in season fruits for the sweetest, yummiest skewers. For extra indulgence add marshmallows, a drizzle of melted chocolate or a chocolate dip.


Personalised Drinks – This is the number one drink solution we have seen. Pop top drinks with name labels on them, or labelled disposable cups. Try hand written names with a permanent marker, a printed label taped to the bottle/cup or a sticky name label from your label machine. So many options!! And so very convenient to ensure everyone can keep track of their drink and no one ends up sharing germs.

‘Wedding Cake’ – Homemade by mum.



One of my favourite party food memories was at a Charlee Cheerleader party for a gorgeous 7 year old. Mum presented an extravagant, homemade and truly perfect two-tiered blush pink cake and declared that Miss 7 had requested a wedding cake for her birthday.
