A five-year-old schoolgirl asked her mum for a lunchbox with a massive photo of her of her own face on it – to stop classmates stealing her lunch.
Eden Richardson was asked by mum Andrea, 31, what type of lunchbox she wanted for the start of the new school year.
Expecting the Frozen-mad five-year-old to ask for a Disney one, the mum-of-two was taken aback when her daughter demanded one with a huge photo of her own face.
Eden chose her favourite photo, and Andrea ordered it to be printed on a lunch bag for £12 from Amazon.
The mum-of-two says Eden’s unique choice of lunchbox has “gone down well” with the year one pupil and her classmates.
Andrea from Birmingham said: “I was asking Eden what type of lunchbox she would like for school.
“I made a few suggestions like a Frozen or a glittery unicorn one.
“But she just turned round and said ‘No, I’d like one with my face on so everyone knows its mine and no one takes my food!’
“It wasn’t what I was expecting but was happy to go along with it.
“I got Eden to pick a photo so wanted and we ordered it that night.
“The teachers at the school can’t help but laugh every time she arrives in the mornings with it on.
“The other day one of them went ‘we will definitely know whose this is at lunchtime!”
