I love Valentine’s season, but to be honest, it’s a lot like Halloween and Christmas: it’s a SWEETS OVERLOAD! So take a break from the sugar and check out a few healthy (yet adorable) alternatives for your Valentine’s celebration.
Fruit Cabobs. Red grapes and heart-shaped strawberries skewered together make a delectable Valentine’s treat! Modern Parents, Messy Kids.
Cheese and Crackers. Use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter for the cheese and serve on whole grain crackers. Such a cute idea from MilDecasdeMae
Cute Fruit. Wrap tags around various fruits with tags like “I am bananas for you!” and “You are the apple of my eye!” and “You are ‘pear’fect!” From Wild Donna.
Parfaits. Layer red or pink fruit, pink yogurt, and a sprinkle of granola on top. This absolutely delicious idea is from, Project Nursery.
Fruit Smoothie. Again, stick with the pink or red fruits to fit the theme of love! Another great idea from, Project Nursery.
Snack Mix. Check out this ‘LOVE’ly mix including strawberry mini shredded wheat, heart-shaped cereal and dried strawberries. Mama Miss
Salad. Cutting red peppers and cucumbers into hearts is a sure fire way to celebrate, and eat healthy! One of my favorite ideas from Jo and Sue.
Pizza. Who doesn’t like pizza? It is even more festive when presented in this way. I cannot wait to try this super cute idea from Disney Baby.

Egg In A Basket. The Valentine’s day approach to a classic breakfast staple. From Clean and Scentsible
