I wanted to pack her some fresh fruit, veggies & a sandwich, but the requested plastic zipper bag wouldn't offer much protection from bruising and squashing.
A plastic clamshell strawberry basket would! I decorated the basket & bottle with duct tape, both for fun & to cover the original labels :)
Bella's berry basket bento lunch contains:
- A turkey & cheddar flatbread sandwich
- Grape tomatoes on toothpicks to keep them from rolling around
- A Gala apple
- Stretch Island raspberry fruit snacks
- Raspberry lemonade
- Clif Kid Z bar (snack for the bus ride home)
I was able to fit everything in the berry clamshell, which I then packed in the requested plastic zipper bag that Mia Bella had labelled with her name. Squash-Proof!
Bella said she didn't want to throw it away even though she could - and there wasn't a recycling bin - so she brought the berry basket and bottle back home with her to use another time ♥
