Valentine Snacks

Cooking is a fantastic activity for children, so why not find some fun recipes to make together for Valentine’s Day?

Introducing cooking to children needs to be done in a fun and engaging way. Set a little time aside to practise all sorts of invaluable skills and to educate your children about food and the importance of healthy eating. Spending time with your children cooking will also be likely to generate happy memories. Cooking can help children develop a range of skills from hand – eye coordination to problem solving.

Children learn by using their senses so by allowing them to help prepare what they eat, it encourages them to eat it – yet another benefit of cooking :)

There are so many fun recipes linked to Valentines Day that children will enjoy cooking. Some are more treats than healthy snacks so I have picked a few of the healthier options. The children may even love to share them with their friends or family.

Why not try:

  • Savoury Mini Heart Tarts

Simply cut out hearts from ready rolled 3 Valentine Heart Herb Snacks for children.shortcrust pastry using a large cutter. Add a spoonful of cheese and chive dip or basil and tomato salsa into the middle of one heart. Place another heart on the top and pinch the edges together. Using different size heart cutters, experiment with the presentation. Brush a little milk on the top of each parcel and cook in the oven for approximately 20 minutes on 180°c.

You could also make some fun heart shaped tomatoes to eat with your snacks. Cut small plum tomatoes diagonally in half turn one half round and put on a cocktail stick.
