What to serve children

Posted by gandbb (My Page) on

I am going to trust adults to be able to drink red wine without spilling on my carpet, but I don't know what to offer young children at a dinner party that won't make too huge a mess when the inevitable spills occur. Any ideas?

Not much that I can think 7_up or diet sprite is pretty safe....but most parents don't want their kids drinking diet drinks.
A pretty safe one is white grape juice....but if spilled you will have to get the sugar out of the carpet.!
Depending on the age of the children, I might think of investing in several cute and fun sippy cups.

Well, it's over a month too late to answer this but what the heck.

Pour a half glass of Orange Juice. (not tang...but minute maid or Old South) Top it off with a half glass of 7Up. Then add a tablespoon full of grenadine for colour. It's a Shirley Temple and even I drink them. They're soo good! You can leave the grenadine out if you are afraid of spills and stains. It's just red sugar syrup for colour.

I'd vote for the sip cups or even disposable coffee cups that you can now get with fitted lids. A child who is over 2 or 3 might object to something that is clearly for a much younger child, but would accept something that they have seen an adult use.
