Is Henry ready for spaghetti?



In the summer, we tend to skip the pasta since I don’t want to heat up the kitchen with a pot of boiling noodles. But now that fall is here and the tomatoes are ripe, it is time for Henry to try his first plate of spaghetti.
Henry eats pasta for the first time.
Henry’s Nana made fresh spaghetti sauce with her homegrown tomatoes just for this occasion. He had a curious time handling the slippery pasta and quickly smeared the sauce on his face. He enjoyed eating the large tomato chunks in the sauce, but he seemed undecided about the noodles.

Henry is definitely improving his eating abilities. A month ago, I’m not sure he would have been able to pick up skinny noodles coated in tomato sauce. But now, his grasping and hand-to-mouth coordination skills have progressed to the point where he is able to manage this challenging finger food.

Henry's Lunchbox - The Purple Lunchbox

This week, Henry packed four school lunches and purchased one cafeteria lunch.

Henry's favorite lunchbox this year has been his purple Bentgo Kids container. He chose the color himself. He especially likes all the sections in the box so that he can have lots of different foods at lunch. In January, I even purchased a set of silicone muffin cups so that he would be encouraged to use his Planetbox Shuttle as often with its single divider.
