Is your child’s birthday party around the corner? As a responsible parent and citizen, hosting a large celebration for your little one’s birthday in a party hall is the not the best choice right now. With Covid-19 infections still raging on, a low-key birthday party at home with just a few select friends and family members is the best way to go forward.

Children are the most affected due to the constant lockdowns and curfews. Schools have been shut for more than a year and kids are locked indoors. A birthday party is a great way to lift the mood and make your kid feel special and loved. It’s a simple way of letting them know that all will soon be right with the world.

Throw a safe celebration at home taking all the necessary precautions – thorough sanitisation, frequent hand-washing before, during and after the event, wearing a mask even indoors and restricting the guest list are some of the best ways to ensure a safe celebration at home during the lockdown.

Once you have decided that you will be hosting an at-home birthday party, the next step is to decide the kids’ birthday party menu. Cakes and ice-creams are a must at a little one’s birthday party. But, what about the rest of the menu? Are you confused what delicacies to serve your little guests?

Fun Kids’ Birthday Party Food

Here are some fun foods to serve at your little one’s party:

Bhel Puri

Difficulty Level: Easy

Preparation Time: 5 to 10 minutes

An easy to prepare snack, Bhel Puri is loved by all ages. You can prepare the ingredients – bhel, puri, chopped vegetables, seasoning, etc. before the party. Store them in separate containers. At the party, mix it and serve to the guests as per their preferences.

Mini Sandwiches

Difficulty Level: Easy

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

While sandwiches are a great party food, kids often waste the large full-sized ones. Mini-sized sandwiches are easy for little hands to grab. Prepare a few varieties of sandwiches like:

  • Nutella sandwiches
  • Peanut butter and banana sandwiches, etc.

Fruit Salad

Serve a mixed fruit salad platter topped with ice cream, nuts and cherries for a tasty and healthy snack.

Mini Idlis with Sambar and Mint Chutney

Difficulty Level: Medium

Preparation Time: 15 to 30 minutes

Fried idlis are a great option to include in the menu for kids’ birthday party. Idlis are a healthy versatile south-Indian dish. They are a perfect alternative to unhealthy fast food. Instead, of the regular sized idlis go for mini ones that can be served in a bowl doused with sambar and chutney. So yummy and filling!

Aloo Tikkis

Difficulty Level: Easy

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Aloo Tikkis are another favourite snack among all ages. The best part – it’s so easy to prepare. Boil some potatoes, add seasoning and make patties. Shallow fry and serve with tasty accompaniments like tamarind chutney, coriander chutney and ketchup.

Pre-make the samosas before the event and deep fry them and serve hot during the party.


Difficulty Level: Medium

Is there any kid who doesn’t like pizza? The Italian fast-food is now a staple in the menu for birthday party at home. Today, readymade pizza bases are available in all supermarkets.
