Sick of messy yogurt containers in her lunchbox, Madison Alexander decided it was time for a new option. Her idea is to make yogurt containers edible, and it has grabbed the attention of a kids TV show.
With her parents’ full support, Madison registered her idea on the Let’s Get Inventin’ website in March last year. More than 1000 children entered their ideas and Madison was one of nine children chosen.
And now, after months of waiting and a week of nonstop filming, Madison’s friends and family will find out if her invention was successful when the episode airs this Sunday at 5pm.
The idea for an edible yoghurt container stemmed from Madison’s school, which introduced a zero waste policy in 2010 requiring all students to take their rubbish home with them at the end of the day.
“If we had yoghurt it was a pain to clean out your lunchbox every day. It would go all through your bag and all through your lunchbox and I would have to get a new one,” Madison explained.
