Going Green

St. Patrick's Day and the equinox are coming! Kiddo's snack today was green grapes and a green smoothie (banana, a little pineapple, rice milk, vanilla yogurt, a splash of coconut milk and a large handful of baby spinach). Fortunately, I'd been forewarned about the class's special snack (shamrock cookie and green Jello, both with food coloring), so I was able to give T something equivalent but tartrazine-free.

Lunch also had a bit of green to it:

-- Broccoli;
-- Kiwi;
-- Honeydew, cut into little leaf and clover shapes;
-- Granola (substitute spinach pasta or whole-wheat pasta with pesto if your kiddo will eat it).
