We’re having an informal cocktail style reception with tons of passed appetizers and two food stations. Since it’s mid day so we didn’t think people needed a sit down meal, but the planner is suggesting kids meals for the kids because they might not like the other food… I could see that for the passed apps which are mostly seafood, but the stations are risotto and a cheese/bread/olive/fruit display, which I think are both pretty kid friendly… Thoughts??

Could you have a “kid station” whith sliders, chicken nuggets, fruit salad, etc?

Perhaps you could make a few kids appetizers – sandwiches cut up into fun shapes, some veggies or fruit put on skewers, and some cheese or something. Depending on the age of the kids, they’re probably going to be very picky and not terribly adventurous. Keep the kids happy, and the adults will be happy 😉

There are ten kids total, five are 15-17 and the other five are 2-7… I was thinking the 15+ kids would eat regular food, but the 2-7’s are who I’m worried about… I don’t think we could do a station because they’d make me do it for everyone, but meals mean that we would have to corral them to a kids table and make them eat which doesn’t really work with the whole cocktail vibe I’m going for..

You could add an insert to the invitations for families with the younger children. Make it a ticket that entitles them to order at the kids station. Adults with no kids will be turned away. You could place it right next to one of the other stations so it won’t need separate staffing.
