Easy snack for kids: Sprinkled Bananas
This snack is one of my kids’ faves, and when I tweeted a pic of it once, my friend Sharon suggested I post it here for you all to see. So, here you go:
• A banana or two
• 1tbs honey or agave syrup
• some non-pareils or sprinkles
Slice the bananas into 1/2″ pieces, dip in honey (or agave), dip in your sprinkles and done! I serve them with teeny cocktail forks because my kids will eat almost anything if it’s served on a cute little fork.
Use green sprinkles for St. Patrick’s Day. Red for Valentine’s Day. The colours I used are cute for Easter. You get the idea. Even my banana-avoiding daughter eats them when they’re this colourful. And the sugar content is still a lot lower than most treats.
Extra tip: My son LOVES just a few sprinkles on his morning oatmeal or cereal. A little goes a long way, and it’s the perfect way to fun-up cereals without buying the really sweet stuff.
