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.
