    Saint Patrick’s Day Food

    One of my favorite traditions as a kid was our Saint Patrick’s Day breakfast. My Mom always went all out and turned everything green. It was so fun! We of course had to where green to breakfast too or we were pinched. I never liked wearing green, so I always had to scramble to find something. 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!

    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!
