- Squat mason jars
- Empty fruit cup
- Lunch items
Yes that is right! That plastic thing on top is just an empty fruit cup. Save one next time and wash it out. Keep it and use it again and again. Just place one set of contents in the jar and another in the plastic fruit cup. Basically you want things that are “wet” in one and “dry” in another. Here I added meat and cheese to the mason jar and crackers to the fruit cup.
Add the fruit cup in between the lid and band of the mason jar. It is actually a perfect fit! No cutting or trimming required. And the lid itself keeps your contents separated.
Screw everything into place and this one is ready for your lunchbox.
Packing lunch has never been so easy! Grab your supplies and make your own mason jar lunchables for back to school.
