funny question I know. I put one in a ziplock and then the uneaten part can be saved but I hate using so many plastic bags. What are other options for apple to carry and save? They won't fit in any containers that we have already.

 

thanks!

Can you not just throw the whole apple in? That's what I do.

If this is something that comes up often would it be worth getting a container which works. Alternatively what about those reuseable sandwich bags with the PUL lining?

I slice it with an apple slicer, but not all the way down. Just enough so it's sliced but it stays together and you can break the slices off. Then I close it back up and wrap it in press n' seal.  It keeps for a few hours.  Some types of apples get brown faster than others!

A whole apple will not fit in my dh's container so I just slice them up. They fit in our reusable containers at that point. A little lemon juice on the cut apple surfaces keeps them from browning.

 

Is there a reason the apple needs to stay uncut to begin with?

Main reason I can think to have an apple needs to stay uncut is because cutting it up & packing it  can be a pain-in-the-neck.

 

If a child is not regularly finishing apples, consider buying smaller apples?

Really? Maybe you cut it up more than I do. Cutting an apple (or orange) in half or in quarters takes very little effort for me and then it fits nicely in the reusable containers we have.
