Replace Store-Bought Pizzas with Whole Wheat Pizzas
Of course, pizza will always be a popular choice for party food. Instead of serving up greasy junk food from your local pizza joint, try making some pizzas yourself! Buy some ready-made whole-wheat pizza crusts, decorate them with your chosen toppings, and bake them in your oven right in time for your party. This ensures that you not only get your favorite flavor, but that you’re also serving good food to your guests.
Replace Chicken Nuggets with Chicken Kabobs
Deep-fried chicken nuggets are yummy and easy to snack on, but they’re also high in cholesterol and fat. Instead of serving trays of chicken nuggets, why not prepare chicken barbecue skewers and kabobs? Slice up some chicken fillets and marinate in your favorite sauce. Skewer them, roast on a grill or in the oven, and serve!
Replace the Soda with Flavored Water
All-natural and unbelievably enjoyable, flavored water has become quite popular in the past few years. Replace those sodas with seltzer water infused with the flavors of your child’s favorite fruits. For the best results, serve up lemon water, lime water, or orange water, as it doesn’t just give your immune system a boost and aid digestion, the slightly tart flavor of the fruit is sure to be a pleasant surprise in carbonated water.
Making a few small changes will help reduce the amount of junk food that you plan on serving your guests. If you do serve cake, you can opt for cupcakes or serve smaller pieces to each guest. This will help keep the amount of calories and sugar that your child is consuming.
Which idea will you use for your next party?
