Are you throwing a Valentine's Day party for your kids?  While Valentine's Day is notorious for sugary sweets like candy hearts and chocolate, here are a few healthy snack ideas that are a festive and great for kids.

Healthy Valentine's Day Snacks:
  • Fruit Salad - Do you kids have a favorite fruit?  A Valentine's Day themed fruit salad with strawberries, bananas, grapes, and other fun fruits can the perfect healthy snack.
  • Strawberry Milk - Milk is full of vitamins that are good for teeth.  While strawberry milk can be on the sugary side, the coloring is perfect for Valentine's Day - as long as you remember to brush after!
  • Vegetable Kebabs - Make kabobs using cherry tomatoes and mozzarella cubes.  When pairs with cheese (which is good for your teeth), kids are more likely to eat their vegetables.
