Rainbow Fruit Skewers
Green Lite Bites
These rainbow fruit skewers from Green Lite Bites are are both easy and healthy. Just thread pieces of fruit (cut to the appropriate size for your child's age, of course) onto skewers in ROYGBIV order.

The Slow Roasted Italian
Forget the golden arches -- we're swooning over this thick, creamy, minty version of the St. Patty's Day shake from The Slow Roasted Italian. Whirl together vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt, low-fat milk, real peppermint extract and a drop of green food coloring -- then top with a little fresh whipped cream and some sprinkles.
Life in Wonderland
Fruit is more fun when it's cut up into shapes, which is why your kids will be all over these whimsical shamrock shaped kiwi slices created by Life in Wonderland. Just pick up a mini clover-shaped cookie cutter from a craft store and let your littles stamp out shamrocks.
