How to enjoy Valentine’s Day without the sugar rush

Valentine’s Day is here! While we love all the goodies that typically come with this day, it isn’t always a parent’s first choice to have a child full of candy and chocolates. There are plenty of healthy alternatives that can also be fun!

1. Fun Fruits

Strawberries are a great Valentine’s day snack option! You can’t go wrong with a tasty, red, heart shaped fruit that’s easy to pair with so many childhood favorites!

Strawberries dipped in yogurt or added to a pink and purple fruit salad will give your healthy Valentine’s Day snack just the right touch! They also make a great and festive addition to a glass of juice or water!

2. Jazz Up Your Snacks

Heart shaped cookie cutters are an easy way to add some love to a meal. Watermelon, pancakes and Jell-O will all taste that much sweeter when they’re shaped like a valentine. And it’s a great way to change up your kiddo’s everyday favorites! If you’re a parent with picky eater’s, the cookie cutter can be a holiday snack lifesaver.

3. Get Crafty

Valentine’s Day crafts and projects are another family favorite. Homemade valentines can be easy and fun for kids, because it allows them to use their imagination and get really creative.

Gifts for family members and parents can be a bit more challenging but hearts and ‘hugs’ made using a students hand prints are sure to please. Plus they make a wonderful keepsake for families who are able to save them!

 

We hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day!
