A Vegan Birthday Party Menu Every Kid Will Love

No peanuts? No problem. Satisfy partygoers of every dietary persuasion with this tasty menu.

Putting together a birthday party can be a lot of work. Once you send the invitations and figure out the fun and games, it’s a whole different battle figuring out a menu that will work for all kinds of kids—peanut allergies, lactose intolerance, and all the rest. Save yourself from hours of poring over recipe blogs and cookbooks by putting together this easy, playful, and delicious menu instead. Kettle corn provides sugary crunch with a hint of salt and is easy to serve (a big bowl or little baggies will do). For something a little more substantial, mini taquitos will be easy on the bellies and taste buds of your little ones. Serve them with salsa for dipping, and you have all the flavors of nachos without the mess. Finish the fun with fluffy chocolate chip cupcakes that can be easily made gluten-free. Top those delectable cupcakes with a couldn’t-be-easier frosting, and you’ve got a stress-free party menu that will leave you plenty of energy to enjoy the good times.

It’s time to celebrate!
