Halloween Banana Mummy Snack Idea

Today on the blog I am sharing a fun tutorial how to make a Halloween Banana Mummy Snack. It can be tricky to get my daughter to eat fruit at times and making fruit more fun is always a great way to encourage her to eat more fruit. Did you know that Bananas are really healthy. In fact, Bananas are one of the most widely consumed fruits in the world. Bananas can help lower blood pressure and reduce the risks of cancer and asthma.

 

Bananas are rich in the mineral potassium. In fact potassium is super important for helping regulate fluid levels in the body and allowing minerals and waste products to enter in and out of cells. For me, someone with Adrenal Insufficiency, I have spent time in hospital requiring IV potassium. I know what it feels like to be low in this mineral and it’s not a good feeling.

Bananas also have Vitamin B6, Maganese, Vitamin C, Dietary Fiber, Protein, Magnesium, Folate, Roboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin A and Iron.

So, the simple but great idea I am sharing today is the Halloween Banana Mummy Snack idea. All you need to do is get one Banana or two. Starting from the bottom you wrap a piece of gauze around the length of the banana. you can criss cross the guaze or leave gaps to give it more of a mummy feel.

 

What You Will Need

Gauze

Hot Glue Gun

Googly Eyes

Next, you need to make sure you leave a small gap near the top of the banana so you can add eyes. Simply stick the gauze at the back of your banana using the hot gun and then add the googly eyes to the front of your banana. Be sure to use a low temperature so not to damage the banana skin. It’s a simple but effective way to decorate fruit for the kids and could be a hit this Halloween.

  4. This is a great idea; A great way to get kids to eat their fruits and vegetables. I grew up in a different generation where the only place to eat out was the local restaurant and the Dari Dine and we didn’t go there very often. My Dad raised a huge garden and I grew up eating a lot of vegetables.

  5. What a fun Halloween snack idea! So many Halloween snacks are scary and not meant for younger kids. This is a fun way to incorporate Halloween for younger children.

  7. This is so cute! My kids school has a pretty strict snack policy due to food allergies, bananas are on the OK list. I think I might do this for my daughters preschool class for Halloween. What a fun little treat for kids.

  8. This is absolutely adorable! I’m always amazed at how people can turn food, especially healthy food, into the cutest things. I’m not that creative! Lol!

  9. Ha! ha! I do have those bandages! Perhaps this would get my 6 year old to eat his bananas without me asking him to! This is genius and looks super easy!
