Our fan-created recipes 1 and 2 (an Iron Rich Bean Dip) have been posted; now we are onto our third- Banana Crunch. This makes great healthy snack for your little ones with lots of room for creativity with your family’s favorite fresh fruit.
Recipe #3: Banana Crunch
Add a little crunch to help increase a variety of textures with your little ones. You can cut the banana in half or serve in slices. Feel free to use other fruit too!
· 1 packet Baby Mum Mum’s, any flavor
Use a rolling pin to lightly roll over or hand crush the packet of Mum Mum’s to crumble. Pour onto a plate or flat surface, and roll a peeled banana in the Baby Mum Mum’s to coat (you can let your child do this help increase motor skills!) You can also boost the nutrient profile by spreading nut butters on the banana first or other fruit like strawberries, apple, or pear slices. Bananas and mangoes work great without a nut butter, but other fruit will need a little bit to help the ‘crunch’ stay on.
Fun Flavor Combinations:
