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…
