Prep time: 5 minutes
Makes: 2 Banana Splits
Nutrition Facts: View label

Ingredients

1 small banana
½ cup oat, corn, or granola cereal
½ cup low-fat vanilla or strawberry yogurt
½ teaspoon honey, optional (skip for children under the age of one)
½ cup canned pineapple tidbits or chunks (drained)

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Peel and split banana lengthwise. Place half in two separate cereal bowls.
  3. Over each banana, spoon yogurt, sprinkle cereal and drizzle honey, if desired.
  4. Top with pineapple and serve immediately.
  5. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • Try other flavors of low fat yogurt or even cottage cheese.
  • Try other fresh, frozen, or canned fruits.
  • Some foods can cause choking in young children. Be sure that fruit pieces are very small and soft for toddlers. Avoid grapes, chunks of pineapple or melon. Instead, use softer canned fruit, such as fruit cocktail.
  • Honey is not recommended for children under 1 year old.
  • Add nuts or seeds for more protein.

Comments

This is one of those "treats" my kids get out of bed for on a school morning!  They get super excited to make their own banana split, which they can do all on their own.  And it helps me out at the same time trying to get them ready.  We sometimes add chopped nuts on top to add another food group and another great topping for them to choose from.
