Mixing up how you present food to your kids is one of the easiest ways to get them to try new things. These banana boats are such a simple snack to throw together, but they’re packed with nutrition.  A close cousin to Banana Sushi, these are an amazing after school snack or a nice dessert.

  • Peanut butter
  • Chocolate chips

  1. Peel banana and split it longways (make sure not to cut too deep).
  2. Use your finger to split open a little bit more, creating more space for toppings.
