Looking for a perfect gift for your child for Valentine's Day? How about teaching them a bit about the heart?

The American Heart Association says it's never too early to start thinking about heart health. The national organization has several pages on its website dedicated to educating kids about their hearts.

The information includes tips on staying active, making better choices at fast-food restaurants and finding inexpensive foods that are healthy. The site also includes fun activities for kids that will help them understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
