Everything placed in glittery EZ-Freeze lunchbox with a freezable lid and placed inside insulated Charlie & Lola lunch bag.

To make bread roll with a heart centre:

  1. cut English muffin in half, toast it if necessary,
  2. in the top part cut out heart shape with a cookie cutter,
  3. using the same cutter make heart out of sweet pointed pepper or cheese,
  4. place heart in the hole on the bread.
