Chase is starting to explore finger foods and it’s a lot of fun seeing him try to pick up things and put them in his mouth. Sometimes he’ll delicately use his thumb and forefinger, and other times he’ll grab a fistful and shove everything in his mouth like Cookie Monster.
I noticed when I gave him banana pieces that he had a lot of difficulty picking them up to eat. They get slimy very quickly and slip right out of his hands. So it occurred to me that maybe I could coat them in something first, and this “recipe” was born!
- 1/2 cup Cheerios
- 1 small banana
- Process the Cheerios in a food processor. I used our Magic Bullet.
- Cut the banana into small pieces. I did pea-sized for my 9-month-old but the size could vary based on what your child can handle.
- Toss the banana pieces in the Cheerios dust.
