“St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time, a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.”
I don’t know about you, but we sure are ready for some of that summer magic! I wanted to create so many yummy treats for this St. Patrick’s Day, but as we all know, life gets busy and the daily grind tends to get in the way. It’s a good thing a little luck was on my side and my oldest son happened to create these healthy, colorful treats to help celebrate this festive day. Not only are they the perfect color, but they are packed full of nutrients and essential vitamins. Oh, and did I mentioned they are kid approved!
