Not-So-Sweet Valentine Treats For Your Kiddos

Non-Sweet Valentines

Non-Sweet Valentines This is my 3-year-old’s first year in preschool, and his first year exchanging classroom Valentines with his little friends. I spent a lot of time racking my brain about what cute and creative treats we would make, and then a trip to my local Dollar Tree steered me in a different direction. With such an over-abundance of sugary sweets on February 14th, and so many adorable candy alternatives out there, I thought, why do sweets at all?

Healthy Valentine Treats For Kids
Our candy-free Valentine treat bags.

This year, the little guy is taking some cute little goodie bags with non-food items, that will keep his friends happy long after the last bite of chocolate is gone. His treat bags will include: a box of Valentine stickers, self-inflating Valentine balloons, and adorable little cards with animal toys attached. These are items that are much more unique (and healthier) than your run-of-the-mill sweets. And, coming from Dollar Tree, where everything is just a dollar, parents will love the price!

 

Now that I’ve discussed the candy-free options, I have to add that I love chocolate just as much as the next girl, and Valentine’s Day just would NOT be the same without a little bit of sweetness! Everything is ok in moderation, and that includes sweets. If you’re looking for some slightly healthier sweet options, never fear! Check out these great ideas, below!
