If you're a parent looking for gluten-free, dairy-free, and/or egg-free party food ideas that are fun for kids, you may appreciate some of our recipes and ideas here.
Will had seen several different party mix recipes on the side of the gluten-free Corn Chex box, and he thought it would make a great movie snack for him and his friends. I was not crazy about several of the ingredients and quantities in that particular recipe, so I came up with my own version of a crunchy, salty party mix. The boys devoured it!
Of course, a sleepover and a movie calls for popcorn, too! I made a big batch using the stovetop method, with coconut oil and sea salt.
Will attended a friend's party earlier in the year where they had "make your own subs" for dinner, and he really loved this idea for his own party as well. I used gluten-free buns from Organic Works Bakery (their breads are so good!), purchased high quality deli-meats that we know are gluten- and dairy-free from Vincenzo's, and set out an assortment of toppings for the boys to choose from: lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, egg-free mayo, and mustard. The boys all had fun building their own favourite creations.
The boys had an assortment of 100% juices to choose from to quench their thirst after all of their Nerf blaster battles. (Kiju makes a variety of great flavours that kids like, and I like that there is no added sugar.)
After the huge success of the chocolate doughnuts I made from scratch several weeks ago, Will and I decided it would be fun to have birthday doughnuts rather than a cake for his party. I used this recipe, and just changed the topping to candy sprinkles to make the doughnuts a little more birthday-ish.
