5 Tips For A Healthier Kids Party

  • November 16, 2021

There’s nothing quite like the memories, chaos and excitement of a kids party, but what happens when you want to celebrate without all the added sugar, colours and preservatives? Here are some of our favourite ways to have fun with delicious and nutritious snacks, as well as some rousing activities to keep everyone on their feet and moving.

  • 1. Involve your kiddos in food prep time

    OK, it may get a bit messy but that’s half the fun! Consider creating a salad, sushi or taco bar as part of the days’ festivities. By having each young guest prepare their own plate of colourful, nutritious and delicious food – they’ll feel part of the action while actively making their own healthy food choices. Think delicious avocado, grated cheese, Greek yogurt, shredded lettuce, chopped up tomatoes and anything else you want to add to the menu that day.

  • 2. Get those bodies moving

    Whether they’re learning at home, in the classroom or chilling out with the iPad, it seems kids are doing a lot more sitting these days than ever before. Try to get them up and about at your next party by introducing some fun game ideas that encourage activity in the great outdoors. You could set up a scavenger hunt (this can also be done indoors if it rains), play musical chairs with a specially curated party playlist or encourage some ‘healthy’ competition with an old-fashioned egg and spoon race or two.

  • 3. Swap out the fizzy drinks

    Looking for delicious drink options without the chemicals, added sugar and preservatives? Why not trade the old fizzy soft drinks for some nudie nothing but options instead? Whether it’s orange juice, apple juice, tropical fruit juice or even smoothies – we’ve got an array of options to suit even the pickiest of guests. Our tasty fruit and veggie juice options are a super simple way to bring a touch of wholesomeness to the day. Be sure to have plenty of water on hand too. You could also offer flavoured water options by filling carafes with water and adding cut up slices of citrus or cucumber.

  • 4. Create a cake alternative

    Now, we’re not saying forget about the ever-important birthday cake, but it can’t hurt to have a healthier option on hand. The best way to ensure your second desert option is as healthy as possible is to bake it yourself – that way you can control the ingredients used. Perhaps you’re in the mood for a flourless chocolate cake? Or maybe you feel like whipping up a batch of dark chocolate avocado brownies or a tray of homemade blueberry muffins? Whatever option you go with, just be sure to use seasonal ingredients that will help your creation taste all the better. Best of all? These options still allow for birthday candles.

  • 5. Swap goodie bags for goodness bags

    OK, we won’t lie, the goodie bags from days gone by were pretty amazing… But they were filled with so many sugar-heavy items that it’s no wonder we all got a bit hyper on the drive home. Now that we’re a bit more food and snack aware, why not trade the lollies and chocolate for healthier options like fruit, homemade gummies, baked banana chips, veggie chips or roasted chickpeas? They’re just as yummy and will keep your little partygoers fuller for longer.
