If you read a lot of food blogs or like to browse Pinterest, no doubt you’ve seen tons of green treats popping up for St. Patrick’s Day. Why do they have to be so darn cute?
Cute or not, I’ll never be the mom adding green food coloring to my kid’s food to make it look festive. I will, however, bust out the spinach.
Spinach does a great job of turning all sorts of foods green, including smoothies. The best part is that when combined with different sweet fruits, the kiddos don’t taste the spinach. So they are totally getting all the nutritional benefits without any of the I-don’t-wanna-eat-my-veggies fight they may or may not put up. (Your kids put up a fight, right? Please tell me Meghan’s not the only preschooler out there who needs a little shove to eat her greens.)
