Snacktime!

Henry was so excited that today he was the student in charge of snack at preschool.

There are 19 children in Henry's class and the teacher assigns each student a day on the snack calendar. The teacher sends a special snack basket home with the assigned child and they get to fill it with a snack for everyone to share. Fruits, vegetables, cheese and crackers are recommended. The teacher has a few rules about what not to include: no nuts and no junk food (cookies, candy, chips, etc.). 

The kids eat snack together in the afternoon. The student who brings the snack gets to serve it to everyone in the class.

Henry and his dad made a special trip to the grocery store to pick out a class snack. He selected two of his favorites -- Blueberries and Teriyaki Seaweed.


What are your child's snacktime favorites?

Ready for Kindergarten

It's back to school season and Henry starts kindergarten on Monday!
It should be an easy transition for him since Henry will be in the same classroom with the same teacher as his preschool year. For the past three weeks, he has been lamenting that school is better than summer break and he wants to see all his friends again. His goal for the year is to learn to read so he can devour Pokemon cards and comic books. I love that he is excited to be back at school. 

The format and frequency of this blog will be changing this year. Henry has asked that I not take daily photos of his lunches. He says that he would still like to share pictures of his favorite lunches on occasion. I also plan to write a few product reviews of lunchboxes and water bottles. 

Our family is in the process of moving to a new house this month as well, so my focus is on getting us settled into the new space. As a result, I won't be writing much on the blog in September but hope to post at least once per month sta…

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.
