Henry's Lunchbox - Week 4

This week Henry packed 5 days of school lunches.  

Henry's appetite was smaller overall this week and he tried out a few leftovers with mixed results. Although he enjoyed homemade pizza and hot corn on the cob at dinnertime, he did not like them cold for his lunch. The leftover quesadillas and pancakes received more favorable reviews.  

Friday's lunch was his favorite with another completely eaten school lunch.

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.
