Q: We're hosting an outdoor party for my daughter's 3rd birthday. Since we're city apartment dwellers, it will be in the local park a few blocks from our house. In birthday party season, it seems that the kids eat pizza every other meal. We're hoping we can feed the kids something else that can be safely kept at room (or sweltering July) temperature and is still appealing to the toddler palate. Any ideas on how to break out of the pizza box and still please 3 year olds?
