Henry's Lunchbox - Cafeteria Tuna Fish

Henry packed 4 school lunches this week, and purchased one cafeteria lunch at school. He has been eating a lot of protein at breakfast and dinner lately so I'm wondering if a growth spurt is on the horizon. On Tuesday, he discovered that he likes tuna fish sandwiches so that might be making an appearance in future lunches.
