Junk food at slumber parties is a time-honored tradition, but don’t go overboard.
It’s fine to have chips, a small selection of lollies and birthday cake, but supplement these with fruit or a veggie platter and dips so you don’t end up with a party full of tummy aches.
Offer bottled water or juice instead of soft drinks or no one will be going to sleep. Slumber party guests are old enough to make their own food so consider planning a kitchen activity. Make-your-own pizza or tacos work well for this age group.
