Kid Friendly Valentine’s Day Menu Ideas

Sharing is caring!

My favorite way to celebrate holidays is making holiday themed food! These Kid Friendly Valentine’s Day Menu Ideas are perfect for kids of all ages! 

Valentine’s Day is something that we celebrate as an entire family each year! Don’t worry, my husband and I celebrate a different night! I love to make it special by making a Valentine’s Day themed breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert! Some years I even make a special snack! So, I decided to get to work planning out the meals I’m gonna make for Valentine’s Day! I am hoping I can stick with this until my kids are grown. I want this to be something that my kids think back on when their older and it brings a smile to their face!


I am going to share 3 fun ideas for each Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner & Dessert! If you have any amazing recipes that you always make on Valentine’s Day, feel free to leave a comment! I’m always looking for new ideas!

Valentine’s Day Breakfast Ideas

In the past I have made pink pancakes, but honestly they never turn out a super cute pink color once they’re cooked. I am digging these 3 ideas for our Valentine’s Day breakfast!

Strawberry Pancakes - so yummy!

These Strawberry Pancakes are such a fun change from just plain old pancakes! ! If you have smaller kids, I think making them mini would be sooo fun and cute! Make sure and make the yummy Strawberry Vanilla Whipped Cream to go with them too! I am also going to order these silicone mini heart rings to make the recipe in to hearts!


Copycat Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls

These Copycat Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls are actually a Christmas Morning tradition for my family. BUT, they’re seriously so good, that I think having them on Valentine’s Day too is an amazing idea! This idea would be a great choice for you if you have busy, early mornings. You can make them a day or two beforehand and just keep them in the fridge!


Heart Shaped Oven Pancakes -- perfect for Valentine's Day!

I’m really excited about these Mini Puff Pancakes from Our Best Bites!  I mean look at them – are you kidding me?!?  We call them Puffy Oven Pancakes in our family, but adding that Berry sauce and making them mini just makes them that much better!  My mouth is watering just looking at them!  This will be something special for me and my hubby too!  I ordered this heart Cast Iron Mini Heart Pan to make our Puffy Oven Pancakes cute little perfect hearts!


Valentine’s Day Lunch Ideas

Valentine's Day Lunch Idea for School Kids

All of my kids are in school, so I have to pack them a fun Valentine’s Day themed home lunch! This Valentine’s Day Lunch is a fun sample of ideas! I especially love the drinks and Hershey Kiss part of the lunch. You could easy incorporate them into any of these lunch ideas!


Valentine's Day Lunchbox Joke Cards from overthebigmoon.com!

Don’t forget to print off our Valentine’s Day Lunch to put in your kids lunches the whole month of February (until V-Day of course)!

Heart Shaped Pizza's

If you have younger kids that are home for lunch, my #1 choice would be Heart Shaped Pizza’s is the winner for lunch!  Plus as a bonus, you can pre-make the dough and sauce the day before if you want. That way lunch will be easy!  If you’ve never made homemade pizza, Make Craft has an awesome step by step tutorial here! I also suggest making my super easy and amazing breadstick recipe that I shared HERE!


Muffin Tin Lunch Idea for Valentine's Day

My kids always loved doing Muffin Tin Monday when they were toddlers! So, this idea would be amazing for young kids! Here is a great sample of what you could put in it from Muffin Tin Mom!  You can order an adorable heart shaped muffin tin here!

Valentine’s Day Dinner Ideas

For dinner, I’m not suggesting cooking a 3 course meal or anything, but I do like to go a little fancier. In the future (when it will be appreciated), I do plan on going all out!

But, since we’re talking Kid Friendly, I suggest going simple. Something that you can leave plain for the kids, but maybe season differently for my hubby and I!

 Grilled Filet Minot


You can never go wrong grilling! So, this year decided to go with grilling some nice Filet Mignon, Sweet Potato Casserole, Seasoned Broccoli and making some nice rolls and finishing it with some Brazilian Limeaid!  My kids love steak – it’s something that I never get complaints over!  So, that is why I chose it! They don’t like potatoes though, so the Sweet Potato Casserole is for the hubby and I. They’ll eat broccoli (with a little push) and of course the roll!

Sweet Rum Salmon


Another dinner that my kids never complain over is my Sweet Rum Marinated Salmon and I love to serve this Cilantro Lime Rice with it! My kids favorite vegetable is artichokes, so I’d Instant Pot them and serve them with these 4 . If you have never made artichokes, check out this post on How to Cook Artichokes! They also love any rice!  They probably wouldn’t couch the green beans though – those would have been for the hubby and I!

Easy Nacho Bar


Now if you’re looking for something easier or even more kid friendly, then I highly suggest putting together a fun Nacho Bar for dinner! What kid doesn’t love Nachos? My oldest son’s favorite drink is this, Cranberry Apple Punch. So, if you’re looking for a super fun drink, check it out!

Valentine’s Day Dessert Ideas

 Valentine's Day Fondu


I am OBSESSED over this Valentine’s Day Cupcake Fondue idea from Hoosier Homemade!  My kids are going to LOVE LOVE this!  This would be a great for a kids party too!


Sweet Waffle Donut


This technically could also be a breakfast idea for Valentine’s Day guys! BUT, it’s SOOO good that I generally make this Sweet Waffle Donut recipe for more of a dessert!


Heart Shaped Whoopie Pies


Red Velvet Whoopie Pies from Annie’s Eats are a sure fire hit! How delish and fun do these look? I might have to make these for a fun middle of the day treat!

I hope that this list can help you plan your Kid Friendly Valentine’s Day Menu!
