I've never been a big fan of overloading kids with junk food on holidays and at parties. Now that I've got a busy toddler at home with food allergies (he's gluten intolerant) I dread parties and holidays because of the food! I don't want my son to feel like he's missing out, I cannot afford the gluten free snack food all the time and at the end of the day I just really want to make sure I'm feeding him well while I still have a say in it.
These awesome Valentines day recipes are creative, fun, healthy and sure to be a hit with any child or adult:
Pepper Hearts Snack from Gourmet Mom On The Go
Healthy Hearts from Family Fun
Mini Heart Pizzas from Parents Connect
Valentine Popcorn Mix from Kids Cooking
Pink Hot Chocolate from Barbara Beery Kids Cooking
Apple Chips And Dip from Cooking With My Kid

Stuffed Strawberries from The Naptime Chef
Meringue Clouds from Preschool Rock
