Candy Pictures Cake's enough sugar for most kids. How about some healthy snacks? See more pictures of candy.

Experts agree that, in moderate amounts, sugar isn't really going to harm your child. But at a birthday party, kids typically eat a lot of sugar -- too much, in fact -- in a short amount of time. All that sugar and junk food can cause your child's blood sugar levels to spike and then crash, leading to post-cake meltdowns. And those aren't fun for anybody.

So, what do you do? It seems kind of unfair to take away treats altogether, especially at a birthday party. We say, "Let them eat (cup)cake!" Just leave the other sugary nibbles out of it, and try some of our super-fun, kid-friendly -- but healthy -- snacks.
