Connor's favorite food is bananas. That shouldn't be a problem right?
But it is. A young toddler eating a banana is gross. Unless I feed it to him, he ends up mashing it everywhere and it gets all over his face and hair. Grace did the same thing and I fed them to her until she was old enough not to make a massive mess. But Connor LOVES feeding himself. He wants to be independent and therefore it always ends up being a huge ordeal to give him his favorite food.
But the other day I remembered a tip I had seen on the internet somewhere. I honestly don't remember where. The tip was to mash up cheerios and roll the banana in it to give it a coating. That way it won't get all mushy when the child picks it up. Simple right?
So I tried it, and guess what? It worked!
He was amazingly clean when it was all gone. I was amazed. Yes, it's a simple trick but I just had to share :) It's the little things in life!
