Celebrate the 14th with healthy Valentine’s Day snacks and treats that are easy, fun, and so yummy. These are super fun valentines for toddlers and the rest of the family, too!
Valentine’s Day Snacks
Valentine’s Day is a perfect holiday to celebrate with food, and whether you’re looking for a fun snack or dessert, this is a great place to start. From muffins and cupcakes, to smoothies and flavored milks, these are some of our favorites to share.
I tried to include both chocolate and strawberry ideas (so pink!), as well as ones that are just festive for this time of year. You can make them for the kids or with your little sweethearts, and be sure to enjoy them yourself.
(Check my other post for my Valentine’s Day breakfast ideas and you may enjoy these Valentine’s Day sandwiches.)

Chocolate Avocado Pudding
With simple ingredients, zero cooking, and a method that takes about 2 minutes total, this Chocolate Avocado Pudding is a healthy dessert to share with the kids. It’s also low in added sugars yet super creamy and so delicious!
Fluffy Chocolate Muffins
We love these tender muffins for their chocolate flavor but also because they are SO satisfying. They’re great on their own served warm or cold and pair nicely with diced berries or banana as a fun holiday snack.
Chocolate Sugar Cookies
With just a few simple ingredients and a super easy method that the kids can help with, these Chocolate Sugar Cookies are a healthy dessert to share with the kids. We love them plain, but you could even add icing if you want!
Easy Chocolate Cake
This super easy stir-together healthy Chocolate Cake is a cinch to make, and it has less sugar than traditional cakes. Maybe “healthier” is a better description, but whatever you call it, it’s so darn good! (PS: It happens to be vegan!)
Loaded Chocolate Chip Cookies
With slightly less sugar than a classic cookie but the flavor and texture you expect, this is a great recipe to make for the entire family to share. Or bring to a classroom Valentine’s Day party!
Easy Vanilla Cupcakes
This recipe for classic cupcakes is a perfect Valentine’s treat. And you can make slightly pink cream cheese frosting, which many little kids I know would adore!
Easy Chocolate Cupcakes
Moist, fluffy, and chocolaty, these lower-sugar chocolate cupcakes are another easy Valentine’s Day treat. Top them with red or pink sprinkles to make them extra special.
Homemade Chocolate Yogurt Gummies
With just three ingredients, this recipe for heart-shaped gummies is a perfect party food! You can make a batch in minutes, and the kids will love getting to snack on homemade gummies that taste like chocolate milk. These are a healthy heart-shaped snack to keep around at this time of year.
Chocolate Protein Muffins
Rich and chocolaty but packed with nutrition from veggies and fruit, these moist muffins would also make a healthy Valentine’s Day treat for school since they are nut-free.
These easy Banana Brownies are one of our favorite homemade treats to share. The batter comes together easily (and without any fancy equipment!) and the results are so fudgy-perfect. Yum!
Whole Wheat Raspberry Waffles
Add a little pink to your waffle routine with this simple recipe! Sure, these are great for breakfast, but they also make a fun snack with yogurt as a dip and fresh raspberries.
I love to blend lots of healthy fats, veggies, and fruits into Chocolate Smoothies to fuel the kids any time of the day.
Strawberry Greek Frozen Yogurt Pops
Blend up a simple yogurt and fruit mixture, freeze overnight, and serve fun and festive pink and red Valentine’s Day treats!
No-Bake Chocolate Cookies
With an easy method and a result that tastes like brownie batter, these dark chocolate cookie bites are a fun treat to share. Make ahead and pop into the fridge for a special treat to enjoy together.
Raspberry Lemon Donuts
These cake-style doughnuts are bursting with bright lemon flavor and raspberries. We like to drizzle them with a simple yogurt frosting for yummy Valentine’s Day treats.
Made with a nutritious yet straightforward ingredient list, these super yummy Chickpea Blondies are a favorite dessert to share. Plus, you’d never know there are chickpeas inside! Add strawberries or cherries to round it out.
Favorite Strawberry Milk
Learn how to make the BEST homemade strawberry milk with simple ingredients and very low added sugar. We love the vitamin C and protein!
A heart-shaped cookie cutter, fresh strawberries, and paper lollipop sticks are all you need to make this fun Valentine’s Day snack! From Food Kids Love on Instagram.
Fruit Sticks are one of my very favorite ways to help the kids find fruit more fun—especially when they’re reluctant to try new things…or even fruits they liked last week! This is an activity and snack the kids can help make with any colors for Valentine’s Day. Try offering with peanut butter dip or even ice cream for fun.
These Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes have super yummy fruit flavor, are a great option for a first birthday or toddler birthday, and are the prettiest pale shade of pink!
