Henry's Lunchbox - Carrot Water?

This week, Henry packed four school lunches and purchased one cafeteria lunch. He was a big fan of the mini-plums we found at our local produce market, selecting them for his lunchbox three days in a row

He also tried out an original creation: Carrot Water. On Wednesday, his lunchbox came home without the carrots he had packed. Instead, we found them hiding in his water bottle. He claimed that he wanted to try drinking carrot-flavored water, just as he likes a few drops of lemon juice to make Lemon Water. The next day, he promised not to put them in his water if he could pack a dipping sauce for them. When he packed lunch on Friday, he asked if he could put a carrot in his water bottle again and he drank most of it at lunchtime.

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.

Henry's Lunchbox - Week 3
