I threw this lunch together really fast so it’s not spectacular, but the kids really enjoyed it. I found the silicone heart muffin liners last week and was so excited to use them for my Valentine’s lunches. I think it adds an extra bit of cuteness to the plate. This was also my first time giving the kids babybel cheese. I’ve seen them all over the bento blogs with cute little shapes cut of the red wax. Mine is kind of a fail. It’s supposed to be a heart, but my heart shaped cookie cutter was a little large for it and kind of lost it’s shape. It is surprisingly easy to do though and I’ll be trying it again with smaller/better cutters. Here’s what’s in this lunch:
Peanut butter sandwich cut into heart. Babybel cheese with heart cut out of the wax. I filled heart-shaped silicone muffin liners with sliced strawberries, and strawberry yogurt with Valentine’s sprinkles. A few conversation hearts for a treat.
