Henry's Lunchbox - Week 6

This week Henry packed 5 days of school lunches

Henry typically packs his lunch after dinner the night before he takes it to school. This helps to reduce the stress of getting out the door on time in the morning. His filled lunchbox sits in the refridgerator overnight. I fill his water bottle and put both in his lunch bag in the morning.

Henry had a "hot" lunch on Wednesday since his school had a delayed start. We baked a turkey corndog and put it in his lunchbox just before he left for school. On late start days, his class eats lunch first before starting class.

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.
