Kid-Friendly Appetizers

Kid Friendly appetizers are not just suited for young folks - they have all the qualities of
appetizers, perhaps just without the "stuff" (or what we call, "ingredients") kids have likely not learned to appreciate yet. Kid-Friendly appetizers and snacks can include anything from bread appetizers to meatballs to chicken nuggets or chicken strips, and certainly can include dipping sauces! One of the things kids love about appetizers is the fact that they come in petite sizes - almost as though they were designed specifically for kids. Appetizers can be a great way to include some vegetables or other healthy ingredients your kids would otherwise prefer to avoid, such as Parmesan Broccoli Balls, while watching them actually enjoying every bite! Kid appetizers are great for social events that include the young as well as the young at heart!
