During my daughters mid-afternoon snack I couldn't quite decide what i should make her. I know she likes fruit and I know she likes toast. I already gave her a slice of toast as her mid-morning snack, so for the second one I decided to give her some fruit.
What fruit? and plain old fruit? hmmm... She likes banana, but she does get a little frustrated when she has to pick it up and it slips out her fingers. She is also very insistent on feeding herself. So I thought about coating it with something but I couldn't really think what. Eventually I had a plan...
2 scoops of formula (or cereal)
a couple pinches of bourbon vanilla powder
Slice the banana. Put the dry ingredients in a small bowl and coat the banana with it. Then move to serving plate and serve. No need for any garnishing or special plating techniques.
Now watch your baby enjoy...
Tip: For older kids you can dip the banana in melted chocolate and roll in nuts or puffed rice cereal. Other fruits can be used too... They're sure to love it :)
