Well given it appears to be at their home, then I would feel a little strange bringing food for my kids. How on earth would you know what to bring? What happens if you are sitting there eating packed sandwiches & another family turns up with Maccas?! Way too difficult - it doesn't sound like they've given it much thought.
However if it was at a venue or park then that's no big deal to me! Actually we are planning on having our kids birthday at a pub this year. They don't cater for adults at kids' birthdays so people will need to buy their own meals if they wish to eat something other than cake!

I really don't understand all the fuss. Different folks, different strokes. Where exactly is the rule book that states how a kids party should be held?

I am a believer that if you want people to come and share the day with you and your child, then you do need to go to some length to make it comfortable for your guests. Putting it onto the guests to pay their own way I feel is setting your child up for people to not come along, and i feel that's unfair on the child.

I'd have no qualms about hosting a party where I asked everyone to BYO food and drinks. I haven't because I love party planning and $$ isn't really a problem but if I was broke I'd do it.... And truly I can't imagine any of my friends or kids friends parents minding. They are pretty easy going bunch.

Just a question for those that have issues that food should be provided for kids at parties. Would you provide food for kids with allergies at one of your kids parties? Would you make a dairy, soy, wheat, egg and gluten free party food if one of the kids attending were allergic because frankly what everyone is whinging about is the kind of things people with allergies face every time they are invited somewhere and most of us just cop it on the chin and assume nothing will be provided and pack our own.

Wow that's awesome. In the all the countless parties we've been invited to, no one has ever supplied anything my kids could eat. Cept carrot sticks and fruit. My kids never got to share in any birthday cake. They were so good about it too. Made me such a proud mumma
