Variation: St. Patrick's Day Surprise!: Schoolyard legend has it that you have to wear green on St. Patrick's Day. Why not add something green to your child's lunch? To be fair, you should give him/her some kind of advance warning, if only by putting a shamrock sticker on the top of the thermos. Just mix a few drops of food coloring until the drink turns a lovely green!
Comments: If your kid prefers chocolate milk to plain milk, offer this drink as an alternative. The banana makes the milk taste sweet and thick without that bad, bad chocolate.
