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!
