This is our adventure in the culinary world as I prepare fun & healthy eats for my 8 year old son, Christian. Our fire behind this quest is he has Acid Reflux. Our goal is to eat his way thru this discomfort by avoiding bad foods and making healthier choices. Sounds easy right? Wrong! This is a boy who hangs from the fridge and swings from the pantry door so what better to start my little monkey out with than bananas.
Yesterday when searching for an afterschool snack "Cocoa-Nut Bananas" popped up on several different sites so decided to give it a try. It called for Cocoa Powder, Toasted Unsweetened coconut, bananas (sliced on the bias). You simply roll the bananas in cocoa powder, then dip in coconut. They didn't look as good as the online pictures, but hey... what do you expect?
When Christian came home from school and saw his snack sitting on the kitchen table he was so excited. He rushed to wash his hands and sit and take a taste. The fist banana slice was a success. "Yummy!" The second slice back-fired with a puff of cocoa. Christian got up from the table and grabbed a plain ol' banana from the peel and enjoyed it much more. My first failed attempt, but at least he still ate a healthy banana!
