Looking for a healthy and festive treat to serve up for Valentine’s Day? Assemble your favorite fruits in a heart shape for this Valentine’s Day Fruit Tray. This cute fruit platter is easy to assemble, tasty, and a healthy alternative to candy and chocolate.
Over the years, as the kids grow, we keep on experimenting with fun and festive ways to enjoy all of the holidays- but in a healthier way. Last Valentine’s Day we made this Tiramisu for Tots which was a hit for the family. Last week we made Strawberry Valentine’s Day Skewers. The kids seem to get a kick out of anything that are cut out to look like something or any type of shapes. This Valentine’s Day Fruit Tray is formed into a heart to help celebrate cupid’s day.
We used strawberries for their natural heart shape and red coloring. But if you want to use raspberries, purple grapes, or even cherries would work well, too. Have fun with this. It is simple so the kids can all assemble a mini version for themselves with the fruits they like!
Key Ingredients for this Valentine’s Day Fruit Tray
Yes! An easy and festive Valentine’s Day treat! And you don’t need anything fancy to make this. Just grab out your knife or some kid friendly knives and a platter.
What we love about strawberries
As one of the most loved fruits, strawberries are so juicy, flavorful, and loaded with so many great benefits! You can cook with them, bake with them, or enjoy them just as they are. Strawberries are loaded in Vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. They are also known to have many heart healthy benefits, too. Strawberries are a low calorie food and contain no sodium!
Health Benefits of Kiwi
Kiwi are a powerhouse for Vitamin C, one serving contains more than eating two oranges! They also are know to help control blood pressure, help promote healthy kidney function, and are great for our digestive track! These little sweet juicy fruits are popular with children since they are so tasty, too!
How to Assemble this Valentine’s Day Fruit Tray
First start by washing and preparing the fruits you are using. We peeled and sliced the kiwi and cut them in halves. We removed the greens off of the strawberries and sliced them in half, too.
Then grab a white platter or even a cheese board and assemble the strawberries and blueberries in the center. Next layer the kiwi fruit around and form into a heart shape. Refrigerate until ready to serve and enjoy!
