Tuesday Tip for Picky Eaters: Commit to One Small Change in 2013

This week’s Tuesday Tip for Picky Eaters: Commit to One Small Change in 2013.
It's the new year and that means it's time for reflections and resolutions. 
Happy New Year!
First, the reflection. I started this blog nearly six months ago when Henry was nearing six months of age. In that short time, his food adventure has progressed from soup in a bottle to full participation in our family's Christmas Eve dinner. He eats nearly any food from hummus to hum bao. Meats and breads are his favorite, but he also loves mushrooms, squash, pears and citrus fruits. This past week, he enjoyed slurping tortellini soup and clam chowder.

Thank you to all of this blog's readers for your interest in following our family. I find it incredible that this blog has had over 7,000 page views from readers around the world. I am having fun documenting Henry's journey and I have some great ideas for upcoming stories. I hope you will keep reading and sharing your thoughts and suggestions. I also love hearing hearing your story ideas and questions.

Now, for the resolution. I'd like to challenge you to make one small change to your food routine in 2013. Choosing one small resolution makes it more likely you'll stick with it throughout the year. If you have picky eaters, include them in making a family resolution. It might be trying one new food per week, making sure to eat breakfast every day, or enjoying more meals together as a family.

Here's to a happy and healthy 2013!

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.
