10 Valentine’s Day School Lunch Ideas

Looking for ideas to put in your child’s school lunch on Valentine’s Day? You’ve come to the right place.

My kids bring their lunch to school nearly every day, so on holidays I always compete with the school lunch offered by school, which often includes a cookie or a piece of cake and, more often than not, pizza. Valentine’s Day is no exception. Luckily, there are so many crazy cool things that will earn you points with the kids for sending school lunch that way that you wouldn’t even believe it. Cold lunch on Valentine’s Day has never been so much fun!

    Pink and red are popular colors, and making a lunch that is entirely pink and red for Valentine's Day means plenty of tomatoes, strawberry yogurt ... or just a few bananas dipped in sprinkles.
