Love Bug Sandwiches-Healthy Snack Ideas Peanut Butter and Nutella Recipes from It's a Keeper

I love when Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday.  It means I can surprise my little guy with a fun, Valentine themed lunch.  This year, I’m going to make him these adorable Love Bug Sandwiches.

I can just imagine him opening his lunch box and finding these cute heart-shaped sandwiches.  I’m also going to pack him some strawberries cut into heart shapes, Fruit Roll Ups cut into heart shapes and some strawberry milk.

To top it all off, I’ll tuck a little Valentine inside just to show him that his mama is thinking about him.

I just love these sandwiches.  They are super easy to make and super cute to serve.  Plus, they’re very versatile.  You can switch up the fillings to fit your love bug’s tastes!

Cooking with Kids: Get Your Kids to Help!

This is a great recipe to enlist the help of your little ones.  Set them up with a butter knife and some bread and let them spread the filling on each slice.  I also have my little guy slice the bananas.

I handle the grilling part but once they come off the grill, I let him use the cookie cutter to cut them into shapes.  That’s his favorite part!
