Let’s be honest. We all receive those heart shaped chocolate boxes for Valentines Day. If you are a crafter, you know you think about saving it. Now you actually have something you can do with these!
This was lunch for my kids (and will be again on Valentine’s Day). There are so many healthy red foods out there! Here is what went into the above lunch:
Babybel Cheese with heart cut out
Strawberries cut into hearts
Dessert: Red Chocolate Covered Heart Shaped Bananas
Heart Shaped Brownies with Red Chocolate on top
Raviolis (or pasta) cooked in red food coloring
Cranberries (dried would work too)
Here is my children’s after school snack (notice my cute heart shaped cups):
Red Applesauce (It’s actually Homemade Red Hots Applesauce!)
Every day I’m serving up my children’s afterschool snacks in a different heart shaped container like this one (yes, I may have saved too many of these containers with no idea of what I was going to do with them). Even if the foods weren’t red or pink this still gives it a little something extra fun! In the divided containers you can also put things like chips and dip, regular fruit and veggies, crackers, pretzels, goldfish, raisins, etc! I love this idea.
There are so many easy ways to make sweets for Valentine’s Treats. Heart shape anything makes it super cute, add red food coloring, or dip it in red chocolate. I’ve done plenty of those things this February. However, I think these healthy meals and snack are just as fun (well almost)!
