Kids are very fussy when it comes to food. Most of them only like particular kind of foods and have to be forced to eat. Planning a fun menu specially crafted for kids is a great idea when you know you will have a couple of kids at your wedding. Here are some tips and things you need to keep in mind while planning a kids menu for your wedding.
Pick the options carefully. Select things which most kids like. Like for example, cheese balls, French-fries etc as starters. While selecting items, you need to make sure that the food is not too messy if the kids try and eat it on their own. The spice factor…this is very important. Always remember, a dash of spice for us may be too spicy for them. Presentation is very important and the food has to look appealing to the kids for them to try it. Remember that, colourful ingredients with innovative garnishing wow kids. Above all this, the food must taste good too.
Give a good mix of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. Include more of finger foods so that it’s easier for the kids to just pick and eat. For main course, remember to keep the portions small to limit wastage if any. Sandwiches and burgers are good options for main course. Indian options could include mini pav bhaji buns or vegetable cutlets.
Live counters are fun and keep the kids engaged. Including a few live counters at your wedding keeping in mind what kids may enjoy, is a good idea. This is more recommended for desserts. Have marshmallow fondue or a chocolate fountain for the kids where they can help themselves.
Kids just love desserts and they just can’t get enough of them! An ice cream bar with popular flavours such as chocolate, strawberry, bubblegum is a must!
Also candies top the love list among kids…how about setting up a candy bar as special giveaways for kids. Kids can choose candies of their choice and these can be packed in custom made boxes for them to take away. This would definitely be a hit among the kids!
