Well within reason. If we invited people with kids who still have naps they would also be asked if they want to put their kids down for a sleep whilst they were here which is what we do if people come for dinner.
2pm is quite late - my kids are thinking about afternoon tea by that stage as they usually wake up from sleep around then and eat anywhere between 5 and 6pm.
Did they say anything to you?

wow that is a bit odd ...
yeah I would have said about 12.30 or so I would start serving some food - especially the kiddies

I would have a cheese platter and dips set out and then lunch at 1ish.

1.30/2pm would be the norm in my circle for a 12pm invite but definitely nibbles on arrival. And actually we never have 12pm times in our circle anymore as there are three toddlers so it's always any time after 2pm for an early dinner around 5ish!

Like others, snacks on arrival and lunch by 1 at the latest.
My XILs were terrible for this. At Christmas one year, lunch was served about 4:30 after everyone got there about 10:30/11. It was awful!

When we have a do like this, I message my friends & let them know approximately what time they expect to eat because with kids It's easier for everyone. I also advise what we'll be serving so that if someone doesn't eat it, I can cater for them.
Generally in our family/friends we all roll the same 😎

We would normally have nibbles (chips, dip, cheese etc) from when the first person arrives and eat at around 1pm.
If kids were coming we would have some sausages to cook for them earlier if needed.
