Fruit Snack


cooking with children

Like other little children, my little one doesn’t like fruits and vegetables very much. That’s why it’s hard to me to find a good way to give her fruit and vegetable every day.

I have to find different ways sometimes, because she gets tired easily of the same recipe.

On the other hand, this fruit snack is her favorite, she likes it very much and she eats it anytime. It’s easy and fast to prepare and I make it for my children very often.

 

 

Ingredients (1 serve):

1 Pear
1 Banana
1/2 glass of milk
1 teaspoon of sugar

Peel the pear and the banana, put them in the mixer with milk and sugar and mix until smooth.

Taste it before serving, you can add more sugar if it’s not sweet enough or milk if it’s not liquid enough.

Serve it in a glass or in a mug with a straw.

If your children, like mine, don’t like to taste new snacks, straws will make the snack more interesting and funny to drink.

 

Variation:

Bananas, milk and sugar are the basic ingredients for this snack, but pears can be changed and you can use other fruits instead of it: apples, peaches, apricots, strawberries, etc…
You can also try to mix more than one fruit to the basic ingredients, just try and put some creativity in your snack.

Adding some cereals, dried fruits or nuts on the top it will get more tasty and good as dessert after dinner too.

 

Don’t forget to ask your children to help you to choose the ingredients and preparing the snack.
Be carefully: knives and mixer must be used by adults and not children!

Follow my suggestion for cooking with children, also you will find other tasty and easy recipes to cook with your children.

This is a great idea. I think you have to do whatever works when you have little kids. :)

I often make something similar to this. My first son is a picky eater and has been from the smart. Smoothies are the way to go!
