Transcript:5 Quick Snacks for a Kid's Party
Hi I'm Chris Davis for About.com. Cake and Ice cream can sometimes be the main course at a kids party, however, it's important to provide an alternative snack to fuel your party goers little bodies. Here are 5 quick snack that are easy to prepare fun to eat and most of all healthy.
Serve Healthy Snacks at Kids' Parties
For a light and easy snack with several different ways to garnish, try stacking a hard-boiled egg slice on a round cracker. Boil your eggs, gently slice and place on a cracker. From this point you can add pretty much anything to spice it up. Try sunflower seeds, carrot slices, shredded cheese a cucumber slice, or pepperoni. Arrange, them on a large serving tray or individual plates.
Hybrid Fruit Snacks are Perfect for Parties
Another easy snack that is very simple to make but will have your party goers taking a double take is to create your own hybrid fruit. Slice any two or three pieces of fruit that are about the same size and stack the pieces together, alternating the type of fruit. It creates a very pleasing and curious look.
Fruit is usually a party favorite. But instead of just placing it on a tray put it in an ice cream cone. Select the type of fruit you would like to use. If necessary cut it into bite size pieces. Place the fruit in a bowl and mix. Spoon the mixture into individual cones and serve. For an added sweet touch drop a scoop of cool whip on top.
Trail Mix Snacks for Kids' Parties
Gather together the following: nuts, granola, pop corn, pretzels, cereal, raisins, etc. place your ingredients in a large bowl an mix it together gently. Pour the mixture into small paper cups. This provides a healthy energy filled snack that kids can easily carry with them as they are on the go.
Serve Sandwich Cut Outs at Kids' Parties
For something a little more filling make sandwiches, peanut butter and Jelly, ham and cheese, or tuna fish. Now spice them up by using a cookie cutter to cut fun and unique shapes. If you are having a theme based party use cutters that support your theme. This technique also works great on spicing up your presentation of fruit.
Remember to try to provide a healthy alternative to the sweets and beware of any potential food allergies by talking to the parents of your guests. To learn more check us out on the web at About.com. Thanks for watching.
