5 Healthy Birthday Party Snacks

Build Your Own Tacos

Kids love taco night, so why not snack on tacos at the birthday party? It doesn't have to be a greasy, cheesy, unhealthy affair. Bake tortillas in a cupcake pan to make mini tortilla cups. Set out fillings -- lean ground turkey, instead of beef, low-fat cheeses, vegetarian refried beans, and veggies like shredded lettuce, tomatoes and corn, plus cilantro and mild salsa. Each child gets a baked tortilla cup to fill with whatever toppings he or she desires.

We think the kids will give a hearty cheer for these simple snacks! For more about kids and food, check out the links on the next page.
