20 Delicious Memorial Day Eats & Treats For The Entire Family
Our children, our babies and our families have the privileges that they do thanks to the soldiers and heroes who sacrificed their lives for us in battle. Memorial Day is coming up this Monday and gives us reason to remember and honor the veterans who fought in the Civil and World Wars. At 3 p.m. local time, take a minute to pause, reflect and remember those who died in service to our nation. Pass the tradition on to your little ones and celebrate the freedom of our nation with food and festivities. Why not help put the “memorial” into Memorial Day with a family event that is to be remembered each and every year?
Are you with me?
Every celebration requires a whole lot of food, which is why we’ve gathered some of the most delicious burger, salad and sweet treat recipes for the upcoming holiday.

Click through for 20 of the most delicious appetizer, meal and treat ideas for Memorial Day Weekend!
Quintessential Veggie Quesadilla
I love how so many veggies are ‘hidden’ in this quesadilla. Finely chopped and grated veggies cooked between cheesy layers of tortillas makes this another great pick for tots.
Pasta Primavera with Shrimp
Penne is one of my favorite pastas to serve toddlers as they can hold each individual piece in their fists. It also makes for a great pasta salad!
Summer Berry Trifle
Kick the summer with a red, white and blue trifle. Layers upon layers of fluffy, creamy and sweet goodness!
Watermelon Petit Fours
Instead of mini cakes, try cutting out pieces of watermelon for these cream-filled petit fours. Such a brilliant idea, I must say!
Grilled Pound Cake with Berries & Ice Cream
Turn on the BBQ for this one! Grilling pound cake brings out the sugars and adds a little crunch that goes so well with cold ice cream and juicy berries!
Fiesta Rice Salad
Zesty, healthy and chock-full of bright and delicious ingredients. This yummy salad is a party in a bowl and a great addition to your backyard party!
A family gathering isn’t complete without a dish of hummus. It’s creamy, rich in protein and babies love it!
Little ones will love how easy these mini pies are to eat as they are perfect for small hands.
Pasta with Five Cheeses
Gooey, gooey goodness. What child doesn’t like cheese and pasta? The cheeses used in this dish range from mild to sharp and combined with cream and tomatoes, you have a creamy dish the whole family will adore!
Sparkling Pink Lemonade & Mixed Berry Gelatin
Sparkling lemonade gelatin engulfs fresh blueberries and strawberries, creating a gorgeous dessert that is light and easy for the entire family to eat (regardless of their spoon and fork skill levels).
Red, White & Blue Potato Salad
Red, white, yellow and/or blue new potatoes are used to make this colorful salad. If you can’t find colorful potatoes, the regular variety works just as well.
Berry Kabob Cupcakes
Patriotic colors of red, white, and blue showcase these cupcakes beautifully. They make for an excellent ending to a fine barbeque!
