15 finger foods for kids

There is something about finger foods that have kids run to the table to join. I know my kids always enjoy them because it is like party size food. Here are my top 15 finger foods for kids.


Vegetables combined with a Dip. Think of ways you can combine dip with your vegetables; mini peppers with dip inside, small vegetable sticks inside a mini glass and dip on the bottom or these cucumber cups.



Fruit Kabobs- give kids cubed fruits and let them build a fruit stick.



Cheese Cubes Kabob- build a ham or turkey kabob with this non reader recipe



Banana Pops- roll bananas in a tasty treat.


Spider Crackers- make crackers more fun with creating them into spiders.


Chicken Drumsticks- add a tasty marinade to chicken legs and grill or bake and you have a kid friendly finger food for dinner.

Rice Cakes- An easy snack that kids can eat with their hands and create how they like is to add a spread to rice cakes and top with diced fruit.


Mini Hamburgers- anything miniature size means kids can eat it as finger foods as well as have a lot more fun eating.


Add a fruit dip to sliced fruit and kids just might be more willing to dip and eat.


Bruschetta- You can make a fruit bruschetta with cheese (cottage or cream) and chopped fruit or jam. Another method is to try a Tomato Bruschetta recipe


Meat Kabobs- Marinade meat. Shred meat and vegetables on metal skewers and grill.


Ham Roll Ups- You can make lunch meat roll ups easily by adding different fillings.


Mini Quiches- Take your favorite quiche recipe and bake little quiches with a mini muffin pans.


Homemade fruit leather- with the right equipment you can create fruit leather homemade easily. 


Deviled Eggs- Most kids will love deviled eggs for snack or lunch time.
