Going Bananas

I am going Bananas for Banana Lovers Day!

Bananas

I have been really slacking on the blog the last few weeks. It has mostly been due to starting a new job and learning a ton of new things.

Today, I decided to play with my food. I selected a nice banana, a tomato off a plant in the back yard, some pretzel type sticks from a bag of chex mix, some almonds from a jar of mixed nuts, and I used some left over chopped celery.

First I cut the banana in half. Then I peeled it.

I cut off the pointed tip and then made 5 slices of banana. I laid them out in a circle like you see above.

I placed the baby tomato on the center banana slice. This gives it a flower center.

Next, I took the almonds and used them to define the petals.

The pretzel sticks made a nice flower stem.

Finally, I took the chopped celery and laid it out to appear like field of grass.

This cute flower contains fruit (bananas), vegetables (tomato and celery), Starch (pretzel sticks)  and protien (almonds). Add a glass of milk to drink with it and you will hit all the food groups. It is so adorable that the kids will want to play with it while eating their flower banana. They won’t even realize how healthy it was.

How do you play with your food?
