I am going to a first birthday party tomorrow (Saturday).
I don't have children, I have never been around children, don't know much about children.
The mother does not want the kids high on sugar things (good for her).
So ideas please for something to take. I know what I would make if it was an adults sugar free party, but I haven't got a clue what sort of things kids that age would like to eat.
They probably won't eat much at age 1.
Fruit kebabs are easy and attractive. Use different coloured fruits chopped in chunks and thread onto kebab sticks. Watermelon is a favourite for kids, but probably not cheap at this time of year, Gold kiwifruit, melon, pineapple etc. Avoid banana as goes brown. Decorate plate with mint or parsley.
If going to a sugar friendly party in future then can thinly swizzle melted chocolate or honey over them once on the plate. No honey for babies less than 1 though.
Frankly, I think 1st birthdays are really for the adults anyway, so adult food is fine, unless there are siblings or cousins going to be there to cater for.
Kids will generally eat the same food as adults if it is garishly decorated and not too strongly flavoured.
Unfortunately your ideas came to nothing, The night before, we decided to go out for a meal, I decided to change my top and in my eagerness did not sit on the bed like I do at the moment and unfortunately fell backwards..... into the built in wardrobe with sliding doors and a nasty sliding door guide and then I slid down the two layers of built in drawers and and their handles. A 30cm bruise and scouring meant me lying there for an hour before I could move, so no baking/food making done that day.
Oh and of course OH tried to saw his hand off today.
A fwe years ago someone called me an accident waiting to happen, I think I now believe them!
