Green with envy it’s March! Or is it the fact that I have Irish roots? Either way I love this month. I will share with you my own personal favorite green vegetables and what you can do with them be it crafts, or recipes. I will also talk about some great green fruits and what crafts, and recipes I’d like to share with you. Starting this year because my boys are 2 & 3 years old I have a fun ritual that I found on pinterest. I will start this tradition this year, I’m excited for their reactions!
A bowl of lucky charm cereal (only on this day) I’m not a personal fan of sugar cereal (however once in a while is A.OK with me) & a glass of milk with some green food colouring is absolutely the best way to wake up on St. Patrick’s Day! I will follow-up after March 17th with my own photos with my boys enjoying this once a year treat! If you end up doing this with your little one(s) please feel free to share your personal photos! You can always post them on Baby Yums fan page If you have any traditions you’re doing with your little ones to celebrate this day please comment below and let us know what you do!

Nothing says a Pot of Gold like Jello! A great treat for any age!
Here is a good one for little eaters (you can omit salt & use unsalted butter)
Green Pea Puree
- 3 10-oz. packages frozen peas
- 2 bunches watercress
- 1 cup canned chicken broth
3 tbsp. butter
- In a saucepan, cook the peas and watercress in the stock. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the pan with a slotted spoon and put into a food processor with the butter, leaving the stock in the pan. Add stock until the puree is smooth and thick, with the consistency of creamy mashed potatoes. Makes 8 to 10 servings
Heres a really cute one for pre-school children Leprechaun lunch
