21 non candy Valentines

Last week we talked about a special New Years resolution.  Well, my family set another resolution: a complete lifestyle change.  And so far, we’ve been doing great! (Ask me again next month, lol) We’ve cut processed foods and are attempting to go all natural.  We’re not going “organic”, just more natural.  I won’t be a control freak mom that bans my kids from eating cake at a birthday party or special occasions, we just want our kids to be more aware what they’re putting into their bodies.  But here’s the kicker, we’ve cut sugar.   Well okay, the kids and hubby have completely cut sugar, whereas I mostly have cut sugar… I will never give up my Diet Coke, neveeeeeer!  Unless you want to see mean mom….and yes, I’m aware of how bad soda is for me.

So for you non sugar parents, here are 21 non candy Valentines!

    That’s awesome that you’re going off sugar this year! I actually have tons of experience with this, so if you ever need a hand-holding, just hollar! And good luck. It’s worth it.

    Awesome ideas! I am trying to figure out what kind of Valentines to make for my 6 month old to give out at her daycare…. definitely not candy!

    Sorry it’s taken me so long to get back…

    My only kid is 1 1/2, so I haven’t had to go through the packed lunch debacle yet. I have a friend with a blog that did a great series on lunches a while ago. This should give you plenty of ideas!

    Thanks so much, I’ve been looking for something like this all week. Believe it or not a lot of schools are changing rules to where you can bring in food for the class, a safety reason I’m sure, but finding something else other than candy to put with a valentines card was difficult for me, especially for 5 year old children. You’re awesome :)

      Hi Kristelle! My kids school also allows food but with that always come SWEETS and too many at that! Glad we could help with the roundup of NON-candy items! (:

    I too loved diet coke, but decided to give up aspartame, so I traded in my diet coke for stevia cola and I also tried another brand, by the time I worked my way thru these and got the aspartame out of my body I was totally okay not to indulge. Must admit that now if I want soda I go for full calories and sugar.

      That’s a great way to rid yourself of the habit, Lisa! Thanks for sharing!!

    The Googly Eyes valentines download comes up as “page not available”. Were you able to download it?
