Henry's Lunchbox - What a 5 Year Old Eats

In case you missed it, Henry turned 5 last week! So what does a 5-year old eat? This week, he packed 3 school lunches, and purchased one hot lunch at school. He even tried out a few new foods from the grocery store, including the sesame sticks he chose to share with his class for snack day.

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.
