How do you usually celebrate Easter? I just like to enjoy the special day spending time with my kids and my family, eating lots of good food and indulging in some treats. ;) It’s such a fun holiday because spring is coming around, it’s beautiful outside, and everyone is just happy with springtime bliss!

Of course we love to dye eggs for Easter using this natural guide to dying eggs, but I also like to get my kids to help me make some sweet treats for the whole family to enjoy. I love the extra help in the kitchen since I’m usually preparing multiple dishes, and they love the fun treats they get to make. It’s a win-win!

There’s something for everyone in this Easter round-up – a little bit of chocolate, classic cupcakes, fun eggs, peeps, and much more! I hope you find a recipe you can make with your kids. What’s your favorite treat to make for Easter?

Ah, Halloween. Such a fun and exciting holiday for the kids, but it can be difficult to navigate as a parent trying to feed the family healthy, nutritious foods. What’s a parent to do?

My philosophy is, let kids be kids. Sure, I will feed my kids as many vegetables and fruits and healthy proteins as I can at home, but when it comes to special occasions like birthday parties or Halloween, I let them enjoy it. I just follow up Halloween night with a super nutritious breakfast. ;)

The downside of Halloween is that it’s not just one night of candy – you’re stuck with tons of leftover candy and nothing to do with it! Not until now. Put that leftover candy to good use and make a semi-healthy treat the kids will love.

I say semi-healthy because we’re at least using a whole-wheat crust and yogurt in here. The candy is what makes it a special treat! You can use any candy you have in the house, but of course we’re partial to chocolate. I hope you and the kids enjoy this Halloween candy pizza!

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!

There are two big reasons I love St. Patrick’s Day: 1. we get to spend time together as a family doing fun activities and participating in the festivities of the day; and 2. the green theme gives me an excuse to sneak even more healthy fruits and vegetables in my kids’ food! I’d say that’s a pretty great holiday.

No artificial food dyes here to give this smoothie its festive color – just spinach! I promise your kids won’t be able to taste it. Just tell them that leprechauns drink their green smoothies too and I’m sure they’ll gulp it down. :)

There are so many good ingredients in this smoothie that it makes a perfect balanced breakfast (for any day of the year!) or a filling afternoon snack. Bananas and apples give it a delicious fruity flavor, spinach packs nutrition, and yogurt gives it creaminess and protein. Smoothies are the best, aren’t they?

We love making green smoothies for kids that they will love and ask for again and again. I hope you love this recipe!
