Healthy Balance – Kids’ Party Food Inspiration

Baby Thor recently turned two (let the tantrums and bad behaviour begin) and we celebrated the milestone with giant balloons, friends and cake… lot’s of cake. Birthdays are a time to indulge, but I was conscious that I didn’t want a table full of sugar and I didn’t want to restrict the fun either. No cake would have been like Christmas without Santa. I can’t be that mum. What I can be, however, is crafty! Here’s a list of party food ideas I scoured the Internet for pre-party. None need recipes as they are pretty self explanatory, but also pure genius. Don’t worry, as with everything on City Mum, these are for the time-poor; quick, easy and stress-free is my mantra.

Chocolate dipped strawberries

Star-shaped (or any shaped) sandwiches

Watermelon popsicles

Fruit kebabs

Banana pops

Fruit Cones


Happy party planning!
