Need a menu for a fun St. Patrick’s Day lunch? How about a leprechaun theme?
We have been having a conversation in our Being Mom Facebook community about picky eaters, and I really think my kids are chief of complainers when it comes to mealtimes. But holidays can be an awesome chance to sneak in something new to see if the kids might try it.
My original inspiration came from these cute leprechaun hats at Creative Food, but my hats are made from cucumber and cheddar cheese.
Just use a round cookie cutter or lid to cut circles from sandwich bread and decorate with carrots and black olives.
Vegetable Rainbow Plate
With inspiration from JDaniel4’s Mom, make a pepper rainbow with cauliflower clouds and honey mustard dipping sauce.
To make your own honey mustard, just mix together about two tablespoons honey with 1 tablespoon mustard.
Pot of Gold Fruit Cup
And, because everyone loves a sweet treat for dessert, stack fruit up in order of the rainbow and top with mini marshmallows.
I even hid some treasure at the end of the rainbow to entice the kids to eat all the way down.
But don’t let the fun stop with the food!
You can even talk like a leprechaun with a free printable from Using My Teacher Voice.
A leprechaun lunch is a fun way to test the palates of picky eaters while celebrating a fun St. Patrick’s Day.
