We went a children’s Christmas party with my 2 year old the other day. It was such a wonderful warm, fun filled evening for all the kids and families involved. It was a great night.
But we were asked to bring a plate to share – it was dinner time. I don’t mind the odd celebratory treat, but it seemed like 90% of the share plates were chocolates, cakes and lollies!!!! There were some great fruit platters, cold meats, and sliced veggies and bread for veggie dips. So thank-fully we had a couple of other options for dinner. But it might have been nice to see a little more balance on the table.
I think part of it, is that families just get stuck on ideas for these situation. So I thought I would share some great children’s recipe websites to help out with Children’s party Foods.
