February is a month filled with love – heart-shaped candy, chocolates, and of course, Valentine’s Day. It’s a holiday definitely known for its sweet treats! February is also American Heart Month, giving families a great opportunity to make sweet treats good for you.

For tips on having a heart-healthy Valentine’s day, check out this post.

When it comes to holidays focused on candy and sweets, there’s always a debate on how much or how little our kids should be eating.
