Dye-Free St. Patrick’s Day Snacks and Free Printable
Artificial food dyes are really bad for our health, especially for children — food dyes have been linked to cancer, hyperactivity, and allergies.
That rainbow-colored cookie might look like fun, but I wouldn’t want my son to eat it, and I certainly wouldn’t make him treats with dyes.
So I came up with a health, green treat for St. Patrick’s Day and my own goodie bag topper.
The two green snacks without dyes I could find were Veggie Pirate’s Booty and Late July’s Mild Green Mojo chips.
I put some into cellophane bags and stapled my goodie bag topper to it:
Then I added a shamrock sticker I bought at the craft store and voila, you have a healthy treat in a pretty bag for St. Patrick’s Day your kids or husband or party guests will enjoy!
Here is the free PDF for my Be Green! goodie bag topper.
If you don’t feel like printing out a bag topper, here is another goodie bag idea — with green muffin cups and some ribbon.
