Happy Valentines Day

January 4, 2018

This seems like just another holiday for the candy and card company to make money. Well it is, but we can help ourselves, by not giving sweet candies, and to look for more healthy snacks for the whole family. I did a little research and found some great ideas for Valentine treats and fun ideas to share with the kids.

How about surprising the ones you love with a Heart Shaped Cream Cheese and Strawberry Sandwich for lunch! How fun with that be for them to open up their lunch and find a heart shaped sandwich waiting for them, and healthy too..

Cream Cheese gives a full serving of calcium and strawberries are full of Vitamin C-

It can be fun making snacks with the kids! Use heart shaped cookie cutters to cut fruit and veggies, have the kids create the kabobs and use raspberry yogurt for a dip or melt dark chocolate as a dip for fruit, nuts or raisins. Dark chocolate has less sugar than milk chocolate and is packed with antioxidants.

There are so many great websites to explore for healthy and fun alternatives to all the sugar candies that are out for the holiday.
