Simple St. Patrick's Day Lunch Ideas

You may have guessed by now, but I love making holiday themed lunches for the boys. For St. Patrick's Day, I made a couple of different kinds of lunches.
For the first lunch, I found a green pepper that had three loops and cut horizontal slices. I then cut little slivers for the stems from the left over pieces to create a shamrock shape. I made a sandwich and added 'golden' carrots and sugar snap peas to keep with the green St. Pat's Day theme.

The second lunch also had carrots and pepper slices. My boys generally eat the fruit and vegetables first and save the sandwich for last. I placed a chocolate gold coin under the sandwich for them to find.

Another easy idea is to make a sandwich and to cut out a shamrock shape with a cookie cutter.

Other green food ideas:

  • Green Beans
  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • Zucchini
  • Kiwi
  • Cucumber
  • Cabbage
  • Green Apples
  • Cantaloupe 
  • Broccoli
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Green Shakes
  • Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
  • Ice Cream Sandwiches with Green Sprinkles
  • Baked Potatoes topped with Broccoli
  • Make Green Noodles to go with lunch/dinner. Many stores carry spinach noodles, which are green in color.
