FIVE FUN FOOD IDEAS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

We’ve never really made plans for Valentine’s Day in years past but I keep coming across the cutest food ideas for Valentine’s Day on Pinterest and now I’m thinking we could whip up one or two of them with Teddy! He loves being in the kitchen and “helping” make dinner from this stool we gave him for Christmas — things like transferring cherry tomatoes from the carton to a bowl, putting handfuls of pasta into an empty pot, or mixing a salad dressing that’s already been made. I think he’d get a kick out of any of the ideas below — would love to know if you do anything festive with your little ones!

  1. Noticed your comment about getting Teddy to move cherry tomatoes from carton to bowl. I think it is great to get kids started in the kitchen young (our 11 year old was making risotto, under close supervision, with his dad when he was 6). Just be sure to really watch him with cherry tomatoes (and other round/oval fruits). They can be a major choking hazard. Our older son choked on a grape one time and a cherry tomato another. Both times, I had to administer the Heimlich or he would have died. After that, all potential windpipe-blockers were off limits to him unless we had cut them in half first. He’s fine and was fine after we got it out but it left me terrified for the longest time (dad didn’t learn from the first time) so I become too protective for a bit.
