Sugar Out, Snacks In this Valentine's Day!

It’s finally February - after what felt like the longest January ever!  With the turn of the calendar comes the first Holiday of the year - Valentine’s Day.  Cue the SignUpGenius for all the school parties. Personally, I find it adorable to watch my youngest son’s excitement when it comes time `to pick out the perfect Valentine’s for his classmates.  He’s at a fun age where he can generally read what they say and write his own name on all of them (can I get an, amen?!) What creates a level of anxiety in me is the quest for the “perfect Valentine’s Day box”.  You see, I am not a crafty person. I know where the local craft store is but coming up with a Pinterest worthy box for ONE day of use is just not my forte. I’m much more comfortable in the kitchen. 

Today, on the blog, we are highlighting some easy, healthy Valentine’s Day snacks you can create with your kiddos for a break from the sugar.  

First up, for your fruit lover. All you need is a container of raspberries and a bag of white chocolate chips.  Don’t love raspberries? Swap out strawberries. Place one chocolate chip in the center of the raspberry. It doesn’t get much easier than this!   We borrowed this idea from our friends over at

Continuing on the fruit theme, this next one is a big favorite in our house. Fruit salsa with baked cinnamon chips.  Amy over at has an easy to follow recipe on her site. It’s super fun to give the kiddos the cookie cutter and let them cut the shapes out of the flour tortillas.  PRO TIP: this is a great way to use up leftover fruit you have lying around.

Lastly, this is a great trail mix you can make up and portion into snack size bags for the kids to grab on the way out the door. Or, even better, put this in a bowl on the counter instead of the bowl of candy hearts.  Aurora at couldn’t make this one any easier.  This one is especially easy to tailor to your family. Don’t prefer cranberries?  Try raisins. Want to splurge? Add chocolate chips. Fun fact: Limited Edition Cheerios are now available in the shape of a heart.  Does it get any better? 

Follow for these and other recipe inspirations.  Better yet, place an order at for these items to be delivered right to your door so you can get ahead of the game!
