I would recommend different starters for 3 years old, 8 years old, or 13 years old. So, please tell us the age of your "kiddie party" guests, and we'll have some ideas.

It's a party so give people (this time short people) things they like and don't get at home. I would give the kids (and everyone) some kind of appetizer spread where they get to choose what they will and won't eat. No must-eat. So crudites with dips, crackers and cheeses, Middle-Eastern spreads and pickles, Mexican taco with garnishes of choice. You get the idea. Or, if you're not deeply attached to your dessert ideas, do a similar buffet for dessert - sundae bar, strawberry shortcake or cheesecake - each with choices of toppings.

Agree; as a general rule of thumb, if you're hosting a group with varied tastes the food should be as customizable as possible. If there's time, I'd also suggest reaching out to the parents re. possible food allergies/sensitivities - doesn't necessarily mean you have to accommodate all of them, but if you serve an almond cookie, for example, you would then be able to alert the parents of nut-sensitive kids when they arrive so they're aware.
