Looking for great candy free valentines for your child to share with his or her class? These 25+ options all come with adorable printables for you!
One of my most popular posts is my Candy Free Halloween Treats, so I decided to put together a similar post for Valentine’s Day. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a hate on for candy. A treat once in a while is great, and I am actually a HUGE candy freak. However, once I stepped back and looked at what my children were consuming, it wasn’t an occasional treat. It was fairly frequent. It isn’t a “treat” if you always have it.
That, combined with the discovery of my daughters dietary concerns, led us to be more discerning of what we all consume. So whether you are just looking for some options for candy or your school has a no candy rule, these 25+ candy free valententines (all with printables you can download to make life easy) are perfect for you.
