Need some tips and new ideas to get your kids to eat veggies? Read below for some Valentine’s veggies and bento box ideas!
As you probably noticed from my post a few weeks ago, I’m always looking for ways to make sure my kids get their share of veggies at meal times! Like most moms, sometimes I deal with battles and other times it’s a breeze. Presentation is everything for my four year old. And I can’t say I don’t agree with him. Even as a Pinterest Fail Mom, I love making simple bento box meals with delicious and veggie-rich foods like Garden Lites muffins!
Valentine’s Veggies & Bento Box Ideas
Holidays always get my kids, especially my four year old, excited about a lot of things. Valentine’s veggies are the perfect, festive theme for our meals leading up to the day of love. Veggies taste SO yummy when they’re cut into fun shapes, right?! Even for me, it was so fun to prep these heart-shaped bento box meals. I used a lot of his favorites like cheese, tomatoes, bananas, carrots, and yogurt for this bento box.
We tried the Chocolate and Blueberry Oat flavors of Garden Lites muffins. They are gluten-free, dairy-free and packed with nutritious veggies! And, they taste so good! Both of my kids gobbled it all up! Everyone was satisfied with this meal, mama included!
I use our go-to bento box and small food cutters to make the food festive and fun! It’s really fun and easy to make “Pinterest” worthy meals without having the skills in my mama repertoire. This bento box was filled with heart-shaped pasta, yogurt, cheese, peas with red bell pepper hearts and the Blueberry Oat muffin.
What are your go-to tips for getting your kids to eat veggies? Valentine’s veggies should be year round, according to my son!

The opposite of a Pinterest fail! This is adorable! Totally going to try these for my non-veggie eating children.
My very picky son love the chocolate Garden Lites muffins! Did you know they sell them at Costco?!
I should look for these Garden lite products, not sure if we have them here in Canada but they look delicious. Bento style lunches are the best. My daughter loves snacking on bits of things instead of a huge sandwich.
My son is the same way! Little bits vs one big portion!
LOVE these ideas friend!
They’re so yummy!
This looks totally up my alley and I love the V-Day themed meal. Too cute.
Thanks mama!’ Hope you and Lil Miss are doing well’
These are adorable! So festive!
Anything for a holiday?! Haha
Aw love this cute idea and so appropriate for Vday 🙂 Isn’t it crazy how kids will most likely try anything if it’s packaged or creatively made? My daughter wouldn’t try bananas for the longest time, but once I included them with her pancakes as part of “Mickey’s ears” she eat them all up. Haha
It’s all mental games and trickery!!! Lol, love that my kids will eat this stuff up. But hey I admit presentation does sell a plate!
Love all these!! Going to make them next week!
Yes let me know how they like it!
We love Garden Lites muffin! They don’t taste like they’re healthy at all! You’re really clever turning them into hearts!
