Healthy School Valentine's snack

 Last Valentine's Day I signed up to bring treats to my daughter's class for her Valentine's Day party.  Her teacher asked if I would like to bring a healthy snack.  It's pretty easy bringing a big batch of cupcakes with more frosting than cake or sweet sugar cookies with sprinkles. I had to think a bit about a fun way to bring a healthy snack so I came up with strawberries and string cheese.
To make the strawberries look like hearts I simply cut the strawberries in half and then cut a V notch out of the top. These were a big hit with the kids...after all who doesn't like fruit on a stick?!
