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.
A fun St. Patrick’s Day lunch for hungry little leprechauns.
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.
