Here at Mini Party People, one thing we love more than putting together a party, is eating the party food!
We do however know that it is not the healthiest for us, and especially not for our children's bodies. That is why we have put a list of party foods together that are both healthy and delicious and have been kid approved.
Cauliflower base, pizzas
To make a cauliflower pizza base you will need to place a large head of cauliflower in a food processor. Blend the cauliflower well and then pat it down with a paper towel to dry it. Mix in two eggs to bind the mixture and slowly add almond flour to give it a dough like texture and season with salt, pepper and oregano.
Roll the dough up and flatten on an oven tray to make mini pizza bases. Next top off with tomato paste, a sprinkle of cheese and a variety of colourful vegetables to make it appetising for the kids.
The idea of this is simple. Take six or seven different coloured fruit, cut in small, bite sized cubes and thread on skewers. Our choice of fruit are pineapple, cantaloupe, strawberries, purple grapes, kiwi fruit and blueberries.
A great gluten free alternative to traditional pasta, that also carries a variety of nutrients are Zoodles. Zoodles, are zucchinis, that have been shredded into the shape of pasta. They are then lightly boiled or steamed. You can either make your zoodles by shredding a zucchini with a fork or kitchen tool; or buy them pre made from your local supermarket. Once you have boiled or steamed the zoodles, serve them with a pasta sauce and parmesan cheese.
A healthy alternative to a chocolate bar, are chocolate balls. The are made by combining desiccated coconut, pitted dates and cocoa, in a food processor, rolling them into balls and then covering them in sprinkles. They are so delicious, the kids won't even know they're healthy!
