While older kids don't need a theme to have a birthday, their idea may be to eat nothing but junk and that doesn't make for peaceful parties. For a sleepover, plan both dinner and breakfast with an eye toward fun as well as nutrition.
Make your own pizzas and let each child customize to their heart's content. Offer some salad as well or some vegetables and dip for the munchies in addition to the typical chips. For breakfast, pancakes and eggs are pretty easy to make for a crowd. Serve a large pitcher of orange juice and some hot chocolate as well.
