St. Patrick's Green Food Ideas

A GREEN FOOD PARTY is as easy as making dinner.  Just plan green food for one of your meals around St. Patrick's Day and that's it!  This post has some ideas to get you started!



One of our favorite (and EASIEST) traditions for St. Patrick's Day is having a GREEN FOOD DINNER.  My little leprechauns look forward to it every year.  
For some reason they LOVE LOVE this!  

One year I did an I'M SO LUCKY party which was super fun too.  But sometimes we are busy and so I like to just do green foods for a meal around St. Patty's day.  So just make green food for dinner, and your kids will love it (plus a lot of green foods are healthy).

 Remember KEEP IT SIMPLE.  It's okay to go with canned or pre-packaged items.  



One great thing about a Green Dinner on St. Patrick's Day is there are tons of healthy foods (especially fruits and veggies) that fit into this idea.


Add a little fun with some simple extras if you want.  Nothing fancy here, just green paper plates, clovers, and some leprechaun hats.  All from Dollar Tree.

Here's some GREEN FOOD IDEAS:

Asparagus
Apple Jacks cereal
Apple Sauce (colored green)
