Labeling Food for Kids at a Party

Kiddie Soiree: Adult vs. Kids Food

When hosting a party for adults and kids, make sure you have food for everyone. And, I'm not talking chicken nuggets. If you plan on serving spicier dishes or potentially allergy–causing treats, label them.

To see an example of how to do this,


Get a few toothpicks, a fancy piece of paper, and a dab of glue or double–stick tape to create flags for the food. At my parties, I usually have a bowl of spruced up guacamole for adults and a "avocado only" version for kids.

For the older crowd, write, "Spice It Up Adult Guacamole" on the piece of paper. Stick some tape on the slip and wrap it around the toothpick so it looks like a flag before popping it in to the corresponding bowl.

For the kids, do the same thing and write, "Slimey Guac for Kids". The old heads can enjoy the good stuff, while tiny party goers revel in the simple snacks.
