Adorable Valentine’s Day Lunchboxes
Send a little extra love in your little’s lunchbox week. These unfussy ideas make it easy!
There’s no doubt about it: I love Valentine’s Day! The little girl in me still can’t get enough of heart-shaped things and red and pink sprinkles. Now that I’m a mom, I appreciate how Valentine's Day gives me an excuse to go nuts with all things lovey-dovey for my kids’ lunchboxes. Here are some easy ideas for lunches that say "I love you.”
Topping a salad with heart-shaped veggies is unexpected and sweet. Using a small cookie cutter, I cut heart shapes out of cheese and cucumber slices. To make the carrot hearts, cut a carrot diagonally through the middle, and then flip a piece over to form a heart. Secure the two pieces together with a food pick. Along with this yummy salad, I packed up some trail mix, fruit and a homemade Gluten Free Chex® Cereal Treat Bar for dessert. To add some February-14th flair to the recipe, I added a couple tablespoons of pink and red food sprinkles into the marshmallow mix.
