which sentence is correct?

    Only the first is idiomatic. In principle, one could say ...and Henry does so too, but that's a dated/formal/poetic construction, probably best avoided today. – FumbleFingers Jun 5 '17 at 12:59

The first sentence is completely correct.

As FumbleFingers pointed out in the comment, the second one could become correct on principle: "Jane prefers homemade food and Henry does so too." That's a bit archaic, but it would be understood. Better would be: "Jane prefers homemade food and Henry does too."

The meanings are all the same; it's basically just a style question.
