Henry's Lunchbox - Cafeteria Tuna Fish

Henry packed 4 school lunches this week, and purchased one cafeteria lunch at school. He has been eating a lot of protein at breakfast and dinner lately so I'm wondering if a growth spurt is on the horizon. On Tuesday, he discovered that he likes tuna fish sandwiches so that might be making an appearance in future lunches.

Henry chose to purchase cafeteria lunch. The school menu for hot lunch was chicken hot dog and baked beans. When he got to school, however, he decided to order the tuna sandwich, banana, brownie and chocolate milk. He said that the school version of a tuna fish sandwich does not have pickles (unlike the ones I have made at home) and he liked them much better that way.
