Happy Friday guys! Today is week two of our Valentine’s Day Series and today I have a special and very festive lunch! I decided to make it in a way that it can packed in a lunchbox. This way it can be used as a toddler lunch for school or to have a picnic style lunch at home.
For this meal I wanted to use food that could easily be shaped into a heart. Since lunches are usually something that needs to be packed or served quickly; this Valentine’s Day lunch will be exactly that. An easy and effortless lunch to pack for your little ones.
The best part is that it’s also a lunch that can be made for everyone in the family. Even mom and dad can eat this! And if your kids are not in school yet then you can just serve it in a regular divider plate.
So for our Valentine’s Day lunch we are serving my Broccoli and Cheese Quesadillas. These are super easy to make and very healthy. To make these more festive we are going to use a cookie cutter to turn them into a cute heart shaped quesadilla. Make the quesadillas as usual and then use your cookie cutter to cut into them and turn them into a heart. Get my recipe for my Broccoli and Cheese Quesadillas here.
Next we are making these cute berry skewers. I bought these heart shaped picks and thought they would be perfect. I found these at the dollar store and I’m sure you can find any similar ones on amazon or target. Take some blueberries and raspberries, use your heart shaped picks to make some skewers.
For the next two sides I used another heart shaped cookie cutter but a slightly smaller one. I made heart shaped cucumbers and strawberries. The heart shaped cucumbers are to be served with hummus. You can use any type of hummus you prefer. With the strawberries I made a sort of parfait. I used plain Greek yogurt and served it in one of the compartments. Then I topped it with the heart shaped strawberries. I also used Valentine’s Day sprinkles to make the yogurt even more festive.
As you can see this is a very simple lunch to make and put together. It’s also friendly for both baby and toddler. Even moms and dads can eat it. It’s super cute and adds a special touch to a special day.
For our craft I have a very awesome and adorable activity to make for the kids. You can even make it with the kids too. These are special Non-Candy Valentine’s Day Cards. These cute cards are made by Christy from Happy Family Blog. They’re perfect for kids to bring to school for their classmates. Many kids have food allergies to different things so brining non-food related cars for everyone can be very thoughtful. Read all about it and get all the directions here.
Hope you guys enjoyed this week’s meal of our Valentine’s Day Series. We are a step closer to a day full of love and delicious foods. Next week we have our special Valentine’s Day dinner and this one happens to be my favorite one! I also have not one but two fun Valentine’s Day crafts from another amazing blogger mama! Make sure you stop by next Friday for this next part of our series! Have a great week guys!
