Snacks for letter H - Have a Heart breakfast

Are you looking for a delicious and nutritious treat to make with your preschooler for Valentine’s Day? This is it!

If you’ve ever made “eggs in baskets,” you’re going to love this heart-shaped twist on the old classic.

Most of our ABC Snacks recipes are great for a quick afternoon snack, but garnish this one with a bit of fruit and it will make the perfect breakfast treat.

I think everyone in your family will love this one! It’s fun to make and yummy to eat! And it’s a great way to show your little ones just how much you love them! We had a great time making our egg sandwiches together. I hope you have at least half as much fun making yours as we had making ours!
