Henry's Lunchbox - A Stomach Bug

Henry only packed 2 days of school lunches this week, and he purchased one hot lunch at school. He came home early from school one day with a stomach bug, so he was limited to juice and popsicles while he recovered. Luckily, he was back to normal before his weekend birthday.

In case you missed the first post in this school lunch series, you can learn more about our family's lunchbox guidelines here.

DAY 1
DAY 1 - WHAT DID HENRY PACK FOR LUNCH? 
Henry chose to order a hot lunch from the school cafeteria. The menu included a chicken burger and oven fries. He also reported that he had two containers of applesauce, "crispy beans" and chocolate milk. He was very excited about the "crispy beans" which I found out were oven-baked chickpeas.

Trying out travel placemats

Eating out with Henry can be a messy business, so I'm always on the lookout for ways to make it a little less so. Recently, we tried out two different types of placements designed for kids. Since Henry is still practicing how to eat from a bowl or plate, a placemat helps to make clean-up easier. Also, sometimes Henry wants to chew on the edge of the table, so a placemat helps protect the table from his sharp teeth.

The first product we tried was the TinyDiner Placemat. This item receives rave reviews from other baby-led weaning families so I thought we should give it a try. This placemat has suction cups along the sides to help it stay on the table and a catch tray along the front edge to collect dropped items. When baby is done eating, it rolls up and can be tucked in the pocket of diaper bag. It is reusable and dishwasher safe.
The first couple of times we used the TinyDiner, Henry was distracted by the catch-tray. As you can see in the photo below, he spent a good portion of our …

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…
