I love bringing fun into food and especially to take the standard and make it seem a little ‘treaty’.
These are super fun, simple, and you can tailor to your child.
How to make banana pops
I take a popsicle stick, cut it in half with scissors and then sandpaper the end to make it smoother.
Actually, the rougher end should be down, but in deference to the pretty photo I did it upside down – oops!
Take slices of banana and dip in jam, peanut butter, choc spread, yoghurt, or other spreads that rock for your child – honey?
You can then dip further if you want to. Along the bottom row I have star sprinkles, crushed nuts, seed pieces or choc chips.
