St. Patrick’s Day Kid-Friendly Meal

So I am not Irish and totally do not claim to have any Irish charm- even in the littlest. So this meal is really just fun, easy, and green! My girls loved it and I think it could be cute for anyone wanting to celebrate St. Patty’s Day with little ones.

For our meal I used the little artwork drawings we made earlier in the day as our place mates. I served us up some old fashion Sprite in bottles with cute straws. Pan fried Bratwurst and sauerkraut, made some Leprechaun Potatoes, Rainbow Fruit Salad, and for dessert Lucky Charm Bars. See below on how you can do the same this St. Patty’s Day!

Rainbow Fruit Platter

  1.  Wash & Rinse your rainbow colored fruit (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple)
  2. Cut up your fruit into kid friendly sizes
  3. Use a circle tray to help you create the round shape of the rainbow Something like a pizza pan or a circular serving tray will work great
  4. Make your fruit dip out of cream cheese & powdered sugar and or buy yourself some Vanilla yogurt or Noosa Coconut Yogurt to use for dipping sauce. We are obsessed with Noosa so we went with that
