Find a healthier sweet treat for Valentine's Day!
By Stepfanie Romine, co-author of "The SparkPeople Cookbook: Love Your Food, Lose the Weight"According to the Census Bureau, Americans ate 24.3 pounds of candy per capita in 2009, and at least part of that was consumed on and around Valentine's Day.
