View Full Version : Finger food for first birthday
Hello everyone my dd is turning 1 in 4 weeks and i will be doing some finger food.I would like any ideas you have for finger food that is nice and easy for a 1yr olds Bday party
Thanks in advance
So far i have:
Party pies and sossauge rolls
How about a platter of carrot, capsicum and celery sticks with some low fat salsa to keep the health food police happy!
Fruit platter, rice crackers, banana chips, mini muffins,mini pikelets.
Its my dd's b'day in 5 wks so I'll be watching for other ideas too.
Mini impossible pies (quiche without crust) made in mini muffin pans.
I would say:
Cut up fruit
Vege sticks (carrot, snowpeasetc) with Hummus or avocado dip
Big jugs of water
Here's an idea of some of the food we had at my DD's 1st bday:
little star bikkies with a paddle pop stick stuck on the end of them (to look like little fairy wands)
homemade mini sausage rolls and mini quiches (gluten free)
Little fruit 'skewers' (we used paddle pop sticks and cut up cubes of watermelon, rockmelon and honeydew melon and stuck them on it! - worked really well... big hit with babies)
cupcakes decorated as animals
sandwich triangles with jam, vegemite, egg and lettuce, and ham salad alternated.
I cant remember what else we had - but it all worked really well!
I used gluten free flour to make these things and sweetened most of them with honey instead of sugar.
we had fairy bread, ice cream cake etc. But the most popular thing was tiny chicken sandwhiches with no crusts. Cut up fruit was popular too.
They look so good when you use Watermelon Honeydew and Rockmelon. Also you can pop them on skewers like kebabs for the big people, not littlies though!!
Sorry Briannabear, just red yours and you said the same as me...Great Minds!!
Thanks girls anymore ideas welcome.
What about a fruit platter with yoghurt in the middle so the kids can dip their fruit into it?
Sounds good firstbub thanks for that idea:thumbsup:
