Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! While many of us are making plans to celebrate with our significant other, is there anyone else that you celebrate with? For me, that person would be my daughter. Do you make a practice of giving your little one(s) treats on the day dedicated to love? Now, don’t freak out, I am not talking about anything big. Many of us just celebrated a major holiday in December. I mean something small like a card, stuffed animal, or a sweet treat.
Growing up, I remember my dad always making plans to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my mom. He would get her a dozen roses, take her to dinner, and attempt to embarrass her with one of those huge cards (I am sure you have seen them) with a love note inside. Back then I didn’t appreciate how amazing this was; now that I am an adult it makes me smile. What was really important to me at the time was that on Valentine’s Day, mom and dad always gave us, my sisters and I, a small gift and a card. Be it a stuffed animal, candy, or something a little more expensive when we were old, such as a CD, they always made a point of celebrating the day with us as well.
Now that I am a mommy, this is a tradition that I uphold every year. My husband thought it was strange at first but I reminded him that Valentine’s Day is not just for lovers, it is a day to celebrate love. We don’t do stuffed animals. She is only five so she does not need a CD. On my short list, that leaves candy. I don’t know about your kid(s) but mine LOVES candy; I have yet to meet a kid that doesn’t. The problem is, we try to monitor what she eats, as much as we can, and this can be rather difficult when dealing with sweets. So, what is a parent to do?

YumEarth Organics introduced us to their Valentine Organic Pops and Gummy Bears and we immediately fell in love. The Organic Pops come in five fun flavors; Pomegranate Pucker, Wet-face Watermelon, Strawberry Smash, Googly Grape, and Very Very Cherry. The Gummy Bears come in four flavors; Pomegranate Pucker, Mango Tango, Perfectly Peach, and Strawberry Smash. We introduced our daughter to the Gummy Bears last year and they have been her favorite ever since. We went ahead and opened the Organic Pops and she loves them as well. Last night, she was actually walking around with two suckers in her mouth because she couldn’t decide between two flavors.
What better endorsement is there? Introduce your little one(s) to YumEarth, they’ll love it too!
