    I'm going to my daughter's Daycare Christmas Party on the 11th of December. We've been told to bring a plate, with the only stipulation being 'no nuts'.

    I'm not good with snacks and desserts - I usually just do mains and veges.

    Can anyone suggest anything at least half-healthy that is fairly easy to make and kids like?

    Chocolate rice crispy or ricicles cakes - just melt chocolate in the bowl and stir in the cereal.  Spoon the mixture into cake papers and let them set.

    Or just chop up a selection of carrot batons, apples slices etc?

    The key thing is don't stress about it!

    Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches cut into triangles, or use Christmas cookie cutters to cut out shapes.  Kids love them.

    Whole strawberries and bananas cut into slices and dipped in white and dark chocolate; skewer chunks of pound cake or cheese and chunks of fruit on popsicle sticks; top toasted English muffins or small cooked pizza rounds with cream cheese and sliced fruit for mini fruit pizzas; dip the tops of big pretzel sticks in dark chocolate and then drizzle with melted white chocolate.

      I like your suggestion about the fruit... A healthier dip for children might be 1 8 ounce package of low fat cream cheese combined with a single serving container of low fat vanilla yogurt. Try it!

    how old is your child?  there is usually so much junk brought to parties, it's good to go with fruits like strawberries or apple slices. think about what your child likes.  fruit salad has always been a big hit, especially with a whipped cream topping!

    something we did for all school parties was to make a sign-up list of exactly what we wanted. when parents brought their kids in, they would sign up for whatever they wanted to bring. it helped to keep the party foods reasonably healthy and we also knew what the kids would eat.

    Thank you for the great ideas everyone! They all sound good.

    Rebekah, my daughter is 12 months old and at the stage where she just loves food of all types smile, usually whatever Mummy is eating!

    And there is a list but there's nothing on it, we need to write down what we plan to bring. I was thinking I'll check it next week and get a sneak peek at what everyone else is planning!

    KCC I like your sandwich in shapes idea. EASY but cute! CMHypno, the chocolate and cereal idea sounds good too.

    our parties at the daycare I work at usually consist of fun things like cupcakes, cheese cubes, cheese puffs, apples, bananas, cookies, you know party type stuff. Daycares always eat healthy so this and halloween are the two times of year we get to forget the rules a bit. there is also easter and valentine's day.
