Many times, the simple things in life are the best things in life. I think this is particularly true with children.
Celebrating Valentines as a family when you have young children around creates a beautiful memory. Why not make it special by designing a meal in the form of a charcuterie board? Include all their fave things to eat – with a nod toward good nutrition, of course.
Rachel Meier designed this board with her children’s favorite things in mind. She created a simple masterpiece that is as fun to eat as it is tasty. Designed for Valentines, this board can be detailed for St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, a summer swim, a birthday party, and the list goes on and on!
