For the kids I think a great idea is mini hotdogs
Pretty much skinless mini franks in a small dinner roll - the kids woof them down and they look really cute all served up. I always do a large fruit platter and a cheese platter. Having hosted many many kids parties (and attended more than I care to remember) I dont bother with things like party pies etc... kids normally dont eat them because they are too hot and messy hot dogs always go down well as does fruit and things like popcorn etc.....
Its a party and I dont get too wrapt up in serving healthy food. We had DS party last Sunday - we had around 40 people all up (kids and adults) and to make life easy so I could enjoy the party myself I ordered 12 pizzas from pizza hut - at $13 for 3 pizzas could not go wrong, it was home delivered we got lots of kid friendly choices and trust me there was not a slice left for $50 I was pretty happy all I had to do was throw the boxes in the recycle bin

The last big party we had was a 1st and 4th birthday party.
homemade sausage rolls
homemade meat balls
homemade chicken breast nuggets
We also had lamb/bbq chicken/salads/fried rice/potato&pumpkin bake.
Anyone could have anything.

We pretty much have a few of the following for every party-
fruit kebabs/cut fruit
home-made sausage rolls
cordial or punch for kids, beer,wine, softdrink for adults
chocolate covered strawberries (older kids 'high tea')
butterfly cupcakes (for 'high tea' party)
sausage sizzle if its at lunch/dinner time
honey/soy chicken wings if lunch/dinner time
cheese and crackers for parents (but they always like the party food too!)
I learnt early on that they kids are too busy to eat baked goods so don't bother with baking much (cakes etc) anymore as they always went silly on fairy bread and fruit kebabs instead!

chicken and chili sausage rolls,
nuggets with rice crumbs,
Popcorn (no butter),
Fruit and marshmallow ,
Fruit and cheese platter (which was devoured!!)
That's what we had for DDs party. All The hot food was homemade in the oven so not fatty at all (except for the sausage rolls because I used pastry but a low fat one so they weren't oily at all)
