Friday is DDs childcare Xmas party and we have been asked to bring a plate of festive food to share. I don't want to do sweet. What is suitable savoury festive food that small children (who are likely fussier than my two) will eat, and can stand being outside at 28 deg ambient temp? My brain has given up. Oh and ideally doesn't take long to do as I am going out for dinner tomorrow so have not much prep time.  unsure.gif

Oh, and it has to be egg and nut free.

Mini quiche/large quiche cut into bite size bits or dip with crackers, all my kids love French onion dip
Whoops just read your other post, guess quiche is out.
