The two things that come immediately to mind are pizza and ice cream, but it would help to have some context. What type of event are you planning?
A nice dinner

Zucchini pancakes. Whenever we have a playdate, they are a must, and everyone loves them.
Chili, stew, shephard's pie. Some kids like to dunk food and dumplings can be fun. For some reason, soba noodles are popular, with sesame or peanut sauce (allergies permitting of course).
Think simple and comfort food, creamy cheesy, sweet sauces (bbq), breakfast. Pizza is a good choice, simple pastas...spaghetti and meat balls,mac n cheese, lasagna, alfredo...burgers, grilled cheese, eggs, bacon, pancakes, waffles, french toast, bbq chicken, ribs, pulled pork, baked beans, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, sweet potatoes(with brown sugar and marshmallows), ham, fresh fruit, corn on the cob
Get creative with mac & cheese!
I'm with David on the breakfast front! There are so many options...frittata, cinnamon rolls or monkey bread, strata, bacon and sausage, hash, and most breakfast foods use cheap ingredients, are easy to make and some can be made ahead!

I'm on the pizza bandwagon here http://food52.com/recipes...
But then there is Chinese take out too. It does come with fortune cookies.
Lately I've been fooling around with Korean barbecue, but the kimchi might be a boundry for kids.
