Healthy Valentine’s Day Snacks


Since my family has decided to make healthy eating a part of our lifestyle, I have to get creative when the holidays roll around. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I wanted to share with you a simple and healthy snack, perfect for school lunches or even to bring as a snack for the class!

Healthy Valentine’s Day Snacks!

For this presentation I used cookie cutters that were in the shape of hearts and xo’s.

The fruits and vegetables I used were:

  • juicy red strawberries
  • super sweet cantaloup
  • fresh yellow pineapple
  • bright orange carrots
  • radiant red peppers

Can you tell I am excited about the colors?


I often get asked what I do from the left over pieces of fruit and vegetables when I use cookie cutter. My answer is simple, we eat them or save them for smoothies or soup. It works out really well.

When I have brought fruit/veggie platters to some of the girls functions, they are placed among all the beautifully decorated Valentine’s Cupcakes and Valentine’s Day cakes, and still, my platter comes home empty – presentation really does excite children too!

If you don’t want to use cookie cutters, you can still make it looks wonderful…

My daughter is so picky that I have to find creative ways such as these to get her to eat different things. Thanks for the great ideas!
