Banana Sushi is a fun way to get kids involved in making their own healthy snack. Simply peel a banana, add your favourite toppings and then cut into bite sized pieces!

Finding healthy snacks that kids actually want to eat can be hard work. As much as we want them to snack on fruits and veggies, getting them away from chocolate and sweets is easier said than done!

I’m a big fan of making snack time as fun as possible for kids; turning it from mindless eating into an activity that they can get involved in.

Realistically I know that most families struggle with time and fitting in activities like this is usually down the bottom of a long list of priorities. But if you do find yourself with some time to spare, maybe on a rainy weekend afternoon, then this is a great activity to get the kids involved in.

The recipe really is so simple. Just peel a banana, add a “sticky” topping like melted chocolate or peanut butter and then add a coating. I’ve used sprinkles, chia seeds, shredded coconut and rice krispies but you can get creative and use whatever you have at home.

Chop the banana into bitesized pieces and serve straight away. You can even try to get the kids to use chopsticks to eat them!
