WhoHasTheRemote.com wishes everyone a joyous Valentine’s Day. As the holiday of love, Valentine’s Day is celebrated with confetti, cards, and candy. Schools throughout the country mark the day with exchanges of lollipops, chocolates, and candy hearts. To balance out the sugary sweets, Who Has The Remote? advises parents to prepare healthier snack alternatives for Cupid’s holiday, as highlighted in a Health and Wellness article in sheknows.com.
The best family snacks comprise of sweet over-coatings and nutrients-rich insides. Bananas and strawberries are among the most convenient and practical insides, since both have the proper balance of firmness and chewiness, not to mention nutrients and sweetness. As such, bananas and strawberries are both perfect in combination with chocolate, caramel, and other over-coatings.
Bananas, for instance, can be turned into ice pops by sticking popsicle sticks into half-cut bananas, dipping them in chocolate, and then covering them in nuts or sprinkles before setting them aside in a freezer for half an hour. Strawberries, meanwhile, can be tastefully combined with white or dark chocolate of the hardening variety and served chilled or at room temperature. One of the cleverest of all confections involves the freezing and cookie-cutting of strawberry or raspberry yogurt, which can be prepared with or without toppings or crust.
Across the television dial, dish packages are loaded with channels that present all sorts of holiday cooking recipes. Some of these recipes are easy for people with basic cooking skills, while others involve numerous ingredients and day-long preparations. To ensure that things are on the healthy side, it’s best to stick with snack recipes that involve few sugars or additives and little processing or heating, but plenty of fruit-based contents.
WhoHasTheRemote.com hopes that everyone has their sweet tooth satisfied on Valentine’s Day. But despite all the heart-shaped edibles in abundant supply during the holiday of love, there are many ways to balance the sugary contents with the vitamin-rich nutrients of fruits and berries.
