Ideas For Food For A Morning Birthday Party?

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I'm hosting my daughter's 3 year old birthday party from 10a to noon in a few weeks and was hoping for some food suggestions. It's the first party I'm hosting since her celiac diagnosis. There will be about 15 kids and 25 adults.

So far, I've thought of doing a fruit salad and a make-your-own-granola bar w yogurt, granola and a few berries. I was also going to bake some blueberry muffins.

I'd appreciate any other ideas you all might have. Thanks very much in advance!

We love the gluten free Pamela's pancakes. My girls want me to make 'snowmen' with them and we sprinkle them with a little powdered sugar. Maybe snowmen with bacon skis? I like little individual items rather than messy plates at that age, so I would definitely skip the syrup. Maybe even roll them around a bacon or sausage and close it with a toothpick?

My girls love hashbrown casserole, too, and it's a good brunchy food. If you make it in a mini-muffin pan, you can get little single serving bites.

I posted a strawberry cupcake recipe starting from the Betty Crocker gluten-free yellow cake mix - add 3 eggs, the stick of butter, and instead of water I added 10 oz Greek strawberry yogurt and some chopped strawberries. They are so good and make a great birthday cake / breakfast cake.

You might want to take the emphasis off of food by focusing on the fun activities.
