St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner! We all know this holiday is loaded up with lots of green and the dream of finding that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  We are excited to share two new St. Patrick’s Day themed creations straight from the Produce for Kids test kitchen.

  • Pot ‘O Gold Veggies & Dip: Green bell peppers make the perfect shamrock while yellow sweet peppers and hummus are ideal stand-ins for a pot of gold. Parents can slice while the kiddos put together this snack perfect for any little leprechaun.
  • Rainbow Parfait: Let the kids get creative by setting up an array of options (strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, pineapple, oranges, apples, etc.) to build their own rainbow parfait. Here we used Greek vanilla yogurt and built our layers on top. We capped off with a sprinkle of granola for crunch and a star fruit for flair.
