“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.
It’s not.”* –Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
Tomorrow (March 2) is Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Many schools (including my twins’ preschool) will be celebrating today with special activities, story times, and, of course, food. But it doesn’t have to be yet another excuse to fill up on junk. Here are a few fun, simple and healthy recipes from three of my favorite blogs to mark the day. My kids and I will be making them at home tomorrow–I can’t wait!
Green eggs and “ham” Skip the artificial food coloring and make a green scramble using fresh spinach or kale instead…a fun and healthy idea from 100 Days of Real Food.
Fruit striped Dr. Seuss hat Kids can create their own edible Dr. Seuss hats by stacking strawberries and bananas with this clever recipe from Super Healthy Kids. I made mine (pictured above) using kiwi as the base. Just be sure the fruit is evenly sliced or the hat will tip over!
One fish, two fish…homemade goldfish Whole-wheat goldfish crackers (courtesy of Smitten Kitchen) straight from your kitchen instead of a smogululous smoke spewing factory. I think The Lorax would approve!
*This is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes. I like to think of it on those days that I’m feeling defeated and need inspiration to keep up the fight for healthier school food.
Will you be celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday at school or home? If so, what will be served? I am always looking for fun food ideas–please share them in the comments section below!
