Little Leprechauns are bound to love this delicious St. Patrick’s Day lunch whether they enjoy it at home or you pack it for them for school.
St. Patrick’s Day Lunch Ingredients:
- Whole wheat bread
- Cheese slices
Assorted fruit such as:
- Red: strawberries or raspberries
- Orange: cantaloupe, peaches, or clementine’s
- Yellow: pineapple, banana, or mango
- Green: kiwi fruit, honeydew melon, pears, or grapes
- Blue: blueberries
- Purple: grapes
You can really add whatever you like to your trail mix, but this is what I included:
- Mini pretzels
- Mini marshmallows
- Choco Rocks – in green and gold
Prepare a cheese sandwich as you normally would, then using a shamrock shaped cookie cutter turn it into a fun St. Patrick’s Day inspired shamrock.
Gently combine the ingredients for the trail mix and serve in a separate container.
Lay the fruit out in order of the colors of the rainbow – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple (violet)
Note: I found the green and gold chocolate rocks at Cost Plus World Market.
