Fun Green and Healthy St. Patrick’s Day Treats for Kids

Move over Red Velvet Cupcake…it’s time to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. During the month of March, stores are filled with Irish-inspired items, most of which fall under the not-so-good-for-you category.

Whether you’re the parent in charge of bringing slimmer shamrock-style snacks to your child’s class party or you’re looking to lend a little luck of the Irish to your own family, think beyond Lucky Charms this year.

Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread: Instead of traditional white flour, this year you can opt for a whole wheat version of this favorite Irish treat. Think soda bread at its finest – unadulterated without bells and whistles – and without a lot of added fat or calories.

Shamrock Shortbread Cookies: Chicago-based Sweet Miss Givings is a social enterprise bakery that gives back to the community. All proceeds from its sales go to Chicago House, a non-profit organization that helps formerly homeless men, women and children who are impacted by HIV/AIDS. Sweet Miss Givings’ baked goods might not be calorie-free, but all of the cookies and sweet treats are all-natural, preservative-free and made with some of the Windy City’s finest ingredients. They ship nationwide- and won’t cost you a pot of gold.

Chocolate Mint Pie: On St. Patrick’s Day, cap off your festive dinner with a chocolate mint pie, a refreshingly minty cool end to a great holiday.

What’s your favorite healthy St. Patrick’s Day treat?
