Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and let’s face it: your kids will eat a lot of sugary treats come February 14.

Thanks to school, team and neighborhood parties, many kids spend Valentine’s Day surrounded by candy and baked goods, most of which parents provide.

So how can parents help kids enjoy the special occasion without overdoing it? What treats will kids love to taste, with fewer stomach aches or sugar crashes? And what goodies meet party policy?

(To protect kids with allergies, some classrooms insist on only store-bought treats, while others, sensitive to family funds, require homemade. Ask your child’s teacher before deciding what treat to bring. Take special care with nuts.)

Whether making treats at home or purchasing them at a store, relax this year with these helpful tips for choosing Valentine’s Day sweets that are just a little bit healthier. Your kids won’t even notice.
