What food do you have at a birthday party?
When I hear birthday party, I immediately think birthday cakes and ice cream!
But you can’t go all dessert, especially for the kids and have them hyped up on sugar. Unless you are sending them home to their parents, LOL.
You need to have some real food. It has to be delicious, but above all else, it has to be FUN FOOD.
Birthday Treat Ideas
When I am thinking about birthday party snacks, I like to have rice krispie treats. Everyone loves those for sure.
Maybe some chocolate chip cookies, or brownies with whipped cream.
But, if there is a way to sneak some sort of “good food” into the kids, I will definitely try.
Your best bet is to serve it along with something that the kids love and you can get them to eat it. SNEAKY but EFFECTIVE!

Ingredients for Kids Party Snack Mix
- pre-popped pop corn
- goldfish crackers
- fruity cereal (such as Fruit Loops)
- frosted animal crackers
Goldfish Crackers – feel free to use the cheddar, graham cracker, or pretzel version. I like the contrast of the cheddar flavor the best.
Pretzels – I like the wheel shaped ones the best, but use your favorite shape or one that fits the occasion.
Cereal – Any fruity cereal will work but the larger ones are the best. Loops, Trix, Apple Jacks.
Animal Crackers – Animal crackers are fun because of the shapes and the frosted ones are the best, but feel free to use the plain ones if that works for you.
