Kids will feel extra loved with this easy-to-make Valentine’s Day bento box!
The heart-shaped sandwich is made with peanut butter (use sunflower seed butter for a nut-free option) and sliced strawberries and kiwi. We used these sandwich cutters to make the fun shape.
Nutrition Tip: Peanut butter is filled with heart-healthy unsaturated fat that provides you with sustained energy and steers you clear of those midday crashes.
Raspberries with mini chocolate chips offer the perfect amount of sweetness and is paired with heart-shaped carrots and cucumbers for a dose of veggies.
