Can Leprechaun Toast be Healthier?

It sure can!

By adding or removing parts, you can make it better fit your family's dietary needs.

Gluten free? Use the bread you are able to eat, or even a wrap.

Dye free? Use kiwi, matcha powder, or even a little spinach to color the cream cheese. You could even leave it without color, and it's still super fun.

You don't have to be a Pinterest Mom to enjoy this fun toast with your kids.

Don't have cream cheese? Use butter (they won't care) or even peanut butter.

Honestly, your kids will just be thrilled that there is cereal on top of their toast, a fun and unexpected breakfast.

Feeling a little extra motivated today? Use the guide I posted above to create several different colors for the cream cheese, and then put all the colors of the rainbow on top. That would be so fun!
