The Best Valentine’s Day Recipes and Food Ideas for Kids!
I’ve learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.
Valentine’s Day has perhaps succumbed to mass commerciality and there is often the temptation to feel like you need to source an expensive, thoughtful or clever gift for your significant other, but as they say “the way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach”.
“They” don’t actually say that, but I do kind of think that there’s nothing better than having a lovely meal prepared for you, or sitting down to enjoy a meal together.
Whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day or not, it’s a great excuse to get cooking, either as a family, or as a surprise treat to show a loved one just how much you care.
These days, nothing says “I love you” quite as much as spending time with or for another person!
So here’s my roundup of some of the best Valentine’s Day Recipes and food ideas to try with (or without!) your kids!
