Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with these fun and festive food ideas the whole family will enjoy. From Shamrock chips and green foods to rainbow parfaits and traditional Irish dishes.

St. Patrick’s Day is March 17 so grab something green to wear, add something Irish to your menu and bring on all the rainbow foods to celebrate!

My girls are always careful not to get pinched on St. Patrick’s Day, often wearing green to bed the night before “just to be on the safe side.

My family is Irish, so playing up St. Patrick’s Day is always fun for me. We’ve done the leprechaun footprints, hunted for four-leaf clovers and made green smoothies to drink.

Go Green – without the dye!

There are so many natural green foods to enjoy, you don’t need to reach for food coloring to go green. Make a fun all-green snack board or create a dish using as many green foods as you can.

Here are some great options:

  • Broccoli
  • Green Grapes
  • Spinach
  • Kiwi
  • Green Beans
  • Green Lentils
  • Apples
  • Edamame
  • Cucumbers
  • Olives
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Celery
  • Asparagus
  • Lettuce, or other leafy greens
  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • Avocado

Below are some festive ideas to get creative in the kitchen and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with fun food ideas. What’s on the menu for your family?
