Today is Green Eggs and Ham day at my son’s pre-school. The kids have been studying rhyming and reading Dr. Suess’ beloved book with the same title. To finish off the unit, they will be eating brunch for lunch today and actual green scrambled eggs and ham will be served.
To most parents, this sounds like a fun adventure but to those of you who have a food allergic child, this sounds like a disaster! Six years ago, when my oldest was in this same pre-school class I came up with a fun alternative to green eggs and ham that turned out to be quite a hit! Green Jello eggs was my answer. So, this morning I whipped up another batch of safe green Jello eggs and sent my youngest off to enjoy the celebration.
If you have a food allergic child or just want a fun way to talk about Green Eggs and Ham, I suggest you give these a try!
