15 Fun, Healthy, Kid-Approved Ideas for Your Super Bowl Party

on January 21, 2014

Slide1With the Super Bowl right around the corner, we like to make the big day as much fun for the kids as it is for the adults.  Here are 15 of our favorite food and fun ideas:

Crispy Chicken Bites – quick, easy, delicious.  These small bites are a favorite around my house all year, but especially during parties.

Kale Chips – Have your kids tried kale chips yet?  Don’t let the fact that they are a leafy green fool you (or your kids).  You may be surprised how quickly these disappear.  YUM!

Holy Guacamole and Skirt Steak Tacos – Guacamole is such a kid-friendly staple that I sometimes have to make a “spicy” version to ensure that my husband and I get some of our own.  Steak tacos are a great, make-it-yourself option for a party setting as well.  Let the kids get involved with making their own dinner.

Mini Taco Cups – Put those taco chips to good use and fill them with taco fixings!  Kids love eating with their hands and this makes another build-it-yourself party meal.

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese – Dress up this family favorite with this antioxidant and phytonutrient powerhouse.  Butternut squash is a healthy, delicious alternative and you won’t miss ALL that extra cheese for a second.

Fruit and Veggie Snacks – FACT*: Fruits and veggies that are fun to look at are usually more fun to eat (*based on years of kitchen table observation…)
