It can be hard to get some children to eat fruit, but there are ways to make eating fruit fun. As we are heading into Summer, when the weather is getting warmer it’s the best time to get kids interested in consuming fruit to help with keeping them hydrated. Watermelon is very healthy and one of the best hydrating fruits around. Bananas are a nutritious fruit full of fibre, potassium and antioxidants. So, I have come up with two kids fruit summer snacks incorporating these fruits and more that are easy to make, and they will have lots of fun making to eat!

Peanut butter and chocolate banana bites

Some children may find bananas “boring” to eat, but I have a fun recipe involving peanut butter, melted chocolate and sprinkles to jazz up the banana snack!

  • optional – sprinkles or dessicated coconut to decorate.

Instructions

    • Slice the banana into 18 pieces around 1.5cm– 2cm thick and place 9 slices on baking paper,
    • Next spoon a teaspoon of peanut butter on to each of the 9 slices and then place the other 9 slices on top making a banana and peanut butter sandwich,
    • Place the banana and peanut butter sandwiches into the freezer and freeze for 20 minutes,
    • During this time melt the milk chocolate over a bain marie or in the microwave,
    • Remove the frozen banana and peanut butter sandwiches from the freezer and carefully dip half the sandwich into the melted chocolate and then shake the sprinkles/coconut over the melted part. Place back onto the baking paper and re freeze for a further 20-30 minutes,

    Remove from the freezer and enjoy! If there are any left, they can be kept in an airtight container in the freezer.

    We love to make these sweet treat fruit cones. They are extremely versatile, look great and are perfect for summer parties and kids’ birthdays. Adults need to be present for melting and handling the chocolate, but then let the kids go wild and come up with their own creations!
