How to expand an inline element "b" within ion-item to make the click area wider

I have a list of “b” elements within the ion list inside ion item. but as the text on the “b” element differs one to one. some have few texts makes them difficult to be clicked.

is there a way to make the click area of the “b” element wider ?

I’ve searched a bit, some suggests using a table, not sure what is the most suggested way to do this ?
