Sometimes as a mom, I run out of ideas for new exciting foods for my baby to try. And when I’m in doubt I just try mixing some of my babies favorites together. It’s that’s simple to have a new dish for your little munchkin ? My girl loves her bananas and she enjoys eating strawberries as well, so I mixed the two together to come up with tonight’s meal plan.
To start with you will need to go to your local grocery store and purchase your items. For this meal all you’ll need is a bundle of bananas and a container of strawberries. I usually buy organic bananas, so they are a little more expensive but still only cost $2.98 tops! Your strawberries will be a little more pricey, but again your getting a good bit for your money. They range from $1.98 to $3.50. When Kroger is having their sales, you can get both for a lot cheaper, so keep an eye out for the weekly ads! ?
Now, for the easy part! Peel 2 whole bananas and cut into slices and then cut those slices in half. Organize on a plate, use a baby friendly plate because you’ll end up giving your baby the whole plate. (I know! She will make a HUGE mess, but she will love every minute of it!) Next, you’ll need to dust off the old Baby Bullett & blend 4-5 strawberries to a saucy texture. Spoon the strawberry sauce onto your bananas and your done!! That simple ?
The Health Benefits
Strawberries provide an excellent source of vitamin C and magnesium. They contain a good source of copper, potassium, biotin and omega-3 fatty acids as well. Bananas are very rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron. Not only that but they help aid conditions such as diarrhea and urinary tract disorders. I also found out another great benefit of bananas recently, which is if your babes gets a skin rash of some short — Rub your banana peel on it and it will provide with itch relief ? Amazing right?!?!
