Birthday Parties - The Good and the Bad!
Haylen_WebMD_Staff posted:
With a 2.5 and a 6 year old, I have probably been to almost every type of party imaginable! (No drop off parties yet) Would love to hear your feelings about party food and strategies:

The Good:

  • Physical activity: What's better than a bounce house? I love parties that get the kids moving and laughing - ice skating, scavenger hunt, organized games.
  • Meeting Moms & Dads: "What do you do with your kids on the weekend?" is a great ice-breaker question when meeting parents. I learn about family friendly hikes, new parks, swim lessons, etc.
The Bad:
  • Food: Juice or soda, bowls of chips and candy, cake and ice cream.
  • More food: Just when you think it's over, here comes a the parting gift bag - filled with candy.

Do you limit birthday party food? Or are all bets off when party time happens? Do you throw parties with healthy food?
