Use this holiday to get kids excited about eating vegetables. These healthy green recipes for St. Patrick’s Day are festive and so delicious! Kid-approved.
One of my favorite things about St. Patrick’s Day, besides getting to spend a fun day with my kids, is having an excuse to make even more green foods. We all know how healthy green veggies are for us and our families, and this holiday, I go all out with the (naturally) green foods!
Normally, I like to get some veggies into my kids’ diets with hidden spinach in their smoothies or recipes like these broccoli nuggets or these spinach & bacon mini quiches. Any veggie counts!

But for St. Patrick’s Day, I like to get a little more creative! We still usually have green smoothies because you can sweeten them with delicious fruit and completely hide the veggie taste, but these healthy green recipes for St. Patrick’s Day are so creative! Pancakes, noodles, muffins…the possibilities are endless!
I hope you get to make some of these healthy green recipes with your kids on St. Patrick’s Day. These are also great any day of the year to get some extra veggies in!

Hi Laura, ….I would love to try your recipes, but unfortunately I am married to a fella who is a “meat and potatoes with gravy, and pasta also” man. He doesn’t like very many veggies, but I try to get as many into him as I can..(sometimes blended in, like soups, etc). But I still like to read about your recipes. There might be something there I can use just by adding a little of what he likes in it.
PS..he is 85 yrs old and still feisty….married 63 years (can’t change him now).

I totally get the meat and potatoes man. 63 years of marriage does not need changing. If you like your veggies, make them for you. Thanks for checking out my recipes Virginia!
I really like your blog and all recipes are quite good. :)
