    Saint Patrick’s Day Food

This tradition has carried on to my own family and my kids always get a kick out of all the green food. Here’s a few of our favorite green foods…

    Every once in awhile I’ll throw some lucky charms in the batter to really take these Saint Patrick’s Day pancakes over the top. It’s also fun to top them with whipped cream and the marshmallows too. Hello sugar!

    Here’s another fun idea to add to the table: rainbow fruit parfaits! Just layer blueberries, kiwi, pineapple, oranges with raspberries on top. Simple, healthy and delicious! These are my personal favorite.

    Growing up my mom always would have green milk for our Saint Patricks Day breakfast. Drop some green food coloring into your gallon of milk and it will blow your kids’ minds. And when there’s green milk, of course you have to have lucky charms! My kids absolutely LOVE lucky charms and are so excited whenever I buy them (Saint Patrick’s Day and their Birthday). Leprechaun Breakfast! Lucky Charms is the breakfast of champions on St. Patrick's Day. Drop some green food coloring into your milk and it will blow your kids' minds!
