Cooking With Kids: Banana Sushi
Encouraging Speech & Creating Yum! Banana Sushi
- 1 Tablespoon raw chocolate bits (any chocolate will do)
- 1 Tablespoon raw almond pieces
- 1 Tablespoon oats (Can get from a bin at the market)
- 1 Banana
Optional: 1 tablespoon apple sauce, honey, peanut butter or anything you enjoy eating with a banana.
Kiddo: Mix the chocolate, almonds and oats on a plate.
Kiddo: Roll the banana over the mixture. To help the ingredients stick to the banana, use your hand to push it into the banana.
Parent: Cut the banana into approximately 8 pieces.
Kiddo: Arrange the banana pieces onto a plate. Place your dip of choice into a small bowl on the side. Grab your chopsticks and enjoy OR just use your fingers :).
Talk about the texture… you have such various textures occurring in this recipe. A banana is soft, but the oats are hard. What are other things you eat that can be hard or soft? During each meal that day, see if you can label the items on your plate as being hard or soft. This can be a great way to work on descriptive words, and to look at what you eat from a different angle.
