March 2 is Read Across America. It’s one of my favorite days of the school year! It is a celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, so that is why you see everyone wearing the iconic red and white hat or Dr. Seuss themed shirts. Being the daughter of a teacher and a mom of 2 incredibly bright students, I couldn’t let this day go buy without my healthy tribute in food. Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham Muffins are the perfect way to start the celebration at home or at school. Kids will love putting there strawberry banana ‘Cat in the Hats’ together on toothpicks. I used spinach to naturally color the eggs instead of artificial colors that some kids may be sensitive too.
