Healthy School Lunches Valentine's Day Bentos

Valentine’s Day week I had tons of fun making bentos. When you have a boy using pink and hearts is usually not an option but with Valentine’s Day coming up you can get away with it. I think these were some of my favorite lunches that I have made.

I made a point to just buy one fruit and use it throughout the week, which really helped streamline lunch packing.

Valentine Bento 500

Monday: Fairy Bread Heart: I put peanut butter on one slice of whole grain bread and cut out a heart from the top slice, I put them together then sprinkled it with Valentine’s sprinkles. I also added straberries, red sweet peppers, and a cheese stick that I drew hearts on.
