As far as catering standards go, most places are 3-11 for kids meals. If they are under 1 I would not provide them with food.  I do have 1-2 year old nieces that eat both mac and cheese and chicken fingers.  So I guess I would plan on paying for anyone that is over 1 year old – or talk to the parents if you are close with them and see what they would want.  Some babies might be on a different diet than others.

I had a couple of baby babies at my wedding (3-9 months) and we did a sand pail filled with things for each kid.  The babies got a teething ring, toy and some baby food since we didnt get them a meal.  I think any kid 1.5+ would really enjoy the coloring books and crayons even if just for them to scribble.

I’d say 10 and younger. We are planning the same sort of thing also.

Talk it over with the parents as every child is different. Most kids start to eat solid food around 2. But chicken strips may not be the best thing for someone that young. 4+ is probably the best age for that. Younger than 4 would do better with mac and cheese for example. However they need to be supervised so they don’t choke, etc. Either way, the parents will know what is best for their child.

Crayons are considered a choking hazard for kids under age 3.
