I was looking for a sweet special valentines treat and knew instantly I wanted to try making my own Jammie Dodgers. I looked at a lot of traditional recipes but they all contained a high amount of refined sugar. I knew I wanted to try and make a healthier alternative using only natural sweeteners. I looked and tried a lot of recipes but really struggled to get a good balance between consistency and taste.

We haven't done many sticking activities recently and was looking for a way to incorporate sticking into a Valentines craft. I raided our craft drawer and also got a few bits from a craft store. I used a heart cookie cutter to trace dots around some hearts onto some pink paper. I cut a few out and I left some on a whole sheet of paper.

Love is in the air! There are lots of ways to incorporate a little valentines fun into your little ones meals. They can be as elaborate or simple as you like (or have time for!)

Smoothie Bowl Heart

To make this yummy smoothie bowl simply choose the fruit that you would like use then blend it with some natural yogurt and transfer to a bowl. You can top with whatever you like but I used chia seeds, desiccated coconut and blueberries. I used two heart cookie cutters of slightly different sizes to help shape the hearts. I sprinkled on the coconut first then using a smaller heart cookie cutter placed the chia seeds on top. Then I simply added blueberries around the hearts. A yummy, healthy, lovely breakfast.
