My son loved this St. Patrick’s Day fun food lunch. I love that is quite healthy and easy to put together as well. Both of my kids gobbled it right up!
Holidays are the perfect opportunity to make fun food for kids. I don’t make fun food very often, but I almost always do for holidays and birthdays. I just think it adds to the holiday fun and excitement.
This meal includes items you probably already feed your kids for lunch, so it only takes a few extra steps to make special treat a reality.
Food Needed to make the St. Patrick’s Day Lunch
If you want to save time you can buy those containers of mixed fruit from the produce section. This way the fruit is already washed and cut and ready to go.
Strawberries – or watermelon, red apples
Carrots – or oranges
Pineapple – or bananas
Green apples – or kiwi, celery, broccoli
Sandwich – I made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich
How to Make the St. Patrick’s Day Fun Food Lunch
1. Cut the fruit and arrange it like a rainbow on the plate. You can also just mix it together and make a rainbow fruit salad.
2. Make a sandwich and then cut it into the shape of a pot. I used kitchen scissors to make mine. I love using them to cut regular food for my kids and they are so helpful when I am making fun food for them too! You can also use a circle cookie cutter or a glass to cut a circle out of the sandwich. Then I just trimmed the top of the circle a bit so that it looked like a pot.
3. Cut circles out of a slice of yellow cheese. I don’t have a small circle cutter, so I used a 1/2 tablespoon measuring spoon. I just pressed it down onto the cheese and the circles came right out.
4. Place the sandwich under the rainbow and add the cheese circles to the top of the sandwich so that it looks like a pot of gold.
Now serve to your kids and watch their delight!
