For those of you who have babies and toddlers, here’s a great, simple way to turn a whole banana into a no-mess baby meal when you have a banana with you but no baby utencils.
It’s amazingly simple to do yet this isn’t something written in Baby HOWTO books:
Throw a whole banana into your diaper bag before heading out the door. When it’s time to eat, mash up the banana before peeling it – just squishing it a bit with your fingers does the trick. Then, peel open a small hole at the end (not the end with the longer stem). Squeeze the mashed banana into the baby’s mouth like you’re icing a cake. Voila – no spoon necessary, and almost no mess.
