Healthy Snack Idea: Banana Sushi Rolls

When it comes to incorporating healthy foods into your child’s diet, it can sometimes be difficult to come up with unique ideas. This banana sushi roll snack combines not only a nourishing option but also an opportunity to teach your little one something new, help them build a sense of autonomy, and inspire them to lean into their creativity. By accomplishing something on their own or with minimal help, your child will feel empowered to be more independent, which can help them build confidence and take more initiative in the long run.

For this recipe, all you need is one banana, your child’s favorite nut butter (or seed butter if they have an allergy), a whole grain tortilla or flatbread, and whatever additional toppings you have on hand (think: sliced strawberries, blueberries, or shredded coconut).

Once complete, you can enjoy the snack together and ask your child to describe the flavors and textures they’re experiencing, effectively promoting language development and sensory exploration. All-in-all, this is a well–rounded experience that combines tactile fun, personal growth, and a sweet treat – a win-win-win!
