I’ve tried cute sticker charts, small toy rewards, seemingly everything! But the best tactic so far has been giving my kids the job of “Taste Testing!” And pairing our taste testing activity with the colors of a holiday makes it even more fun!
GREEN Food Taste Testing for St. Patrick’s Day!
I’ve seen kids taste testing activities on other blogs, too. But I was pretty skeptical my little picky eaters would go for it. But when I put our own spin on our taste test activity by using all green foods for St. Patrick’s Day, the kids jumped right on board!
And they tried new foods, too!

Here’s how we did our taste test…
Green Food Taste Testing Activity for St. Patrick’s Day
I went with a St. Patrick’s Day Theme and chose 9 green foods to offer in muffin tins. Muffin tins are perfect for separating the different foods, and the kids get a kick out of using them.
I included celery (with peanut butter), green grapes, broccoli, green apples, green peppers, and sugar snap peas. And I threw in a couple green-colored treats, too, like lime Jello, green gummy candies, and mint chocolate chips.
I couldn’t believe how excited my kiddos were to try every one of the foods. They ate vegetables that may have never even hit their lips before!

I made a chart with smiley and frowny faces for the kids to circle their “findings.” And I was surprised to see that Priscilla had more smiley faces circled than not. She’s even been begging to taste test red foods next!
