Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday where we shower our loved ones with affection, gifts, and tasty sweet treats. It’s easy to go overboard on the gifts and sweets come February 14th but moderation is always key.
What better way to show you care than making a healthy and delicious treat for your Valentine?
There are endless options of hearts, flowers, cards, and sweet treats at the stores but skip the crowds and increased costs by making something straight from your heart. These dishes are packed with nutrients and are a healthy alternative to traditional treats you would buy at the store.
Ditch the heart-shaped box of chocolate – and try making your own chocolate dipped fruit!
Save on money by using fruit you already have on hand and reduce calories by dipping the tips of the fruit or by adding a chocolate drizzle across it. With this simple dish, your kids can get involved with the dipping to show their love. Tip: Dip fresh fruits into lemon juice after cutting to prevent browning. This works for bananas, apples, peaches, or pears.
When you see all those cute Valentine’s Day cookies and candy sitting on the shelves it can be easy to buy them.
What better way to show your love than showering your kids with cool (and healthy) treats to eat! Your kids will remember these ‘Berry Good Pizzas’ and they’ll appreciate the thought and time you put into making their day truly unique and fun. Tip: Any variety of fresh fruit will work on top of the pizza: for less expensive options use fresh fruit that is on sale or canned fruit.
