Creating an Exciting Kids' Menu

Your entire holiday or wedding event is supposed to be fun for everyone, adults and kids alike. Mealtime can put a damper on the mood if kids' preferences aren't taken into consideration. Be sure to provide a great selection of kid-friendly options.

Offer Unique Options

Menus for kids have become boring and predictable with pizza, chicken nuggets, and pasta. Give your menu an exciting twist that will have kids tasting all kinds of new foods. Offer unique fruits like dragon fruit, or exotic foods on a stick, such as chicken satay.

Use Bright Colors

Take inspiration from adult cocktails and offer up child-friendly drinks or other menu items that look bright and festive. Try out some simple mocktails instead of the standard milk or juice. Use clear cups to show off the colors, and top with fun accessories like striped straws or miniature umbrellas.

Plate Fun Shapes

Get creative with your meal, side dish, and dessert shapes to entice the kids. If you're serving frozen pizza, for example, use cookie cutters to offer kids options on the shape, rather than doling out regular triangle slices.

Let Kids Plan the Meal

If you like to be prepared in advance, send out a poll or survey with your invitations to see which options will be most popular, then put those items on the menu. If you don't mind a little spontaneity, leave the menus blank and stock your kitchen with everything from their suggestions that you can. Once the kids arrive, let them write in their menu choices.

Make Meals Fun

When kids have a hand in choosing the foods they'll eat, they're more likely to fill their bellies. Ask your child or a few other kids who will be in attendance to pick which printable menu they like best, then let them share ideas on specific options to offer.
