It’s okay to let kids eat sweets when they are snacking on Cuties fruit. Cuties are a healthy snack alternative to candy and junk food. Best of all, kids love the naturally sweet taste.
I keep a big bowl of Cuties out on the kitchen counter so it’s the first thing my boys see when they come looking for snacks. Cuties are also an easy way for me to send fresh fruit in their school lunchboxes.
Valentine’s Day Idea: Conversation Cuties Fruit
Valentine’s Day is coming up, and I have a sweet idea for easy Valentine’s treats. It’s a play on the traditional conversation hearts using Cuties.
What To Do: Grab a marker and use it to write fun little messages on each Cutie. I wrote things like XOXO, Hugs, UR Awesome, I Heart You, and Smile.
I set the bowl of conversation Cuties on our counter and waited to see what my kids would say. It actually had an unexpected, but totally heart-warming, result:
My 6-year-old came looking for me, Cutie in hand.
He said: Mom, This says I LOVE YOU! Did you write that message for me?
I said: Yes, I was hoping you would pick that one.
A huge grin came across his face and gave me the biggest hug. Then he happily skipped off to the kitchen to peel and eat his Cutie.
It was such a small thing for me to write messages on the Cuties, but it made a big impression on him. He felt special and loved. I will write notes on our Cuties from now on.
Conversation cuties make healthy snacking fun for everyone! What will you write on your Conversation Cuties?
