Quick and Easy Banana Snack

Kid's Quick and Easy Snack - banana, honey and cinnamon treat

This isn’t my usual kind of post but my kids love this snack so much, I was tempted to let everyone know about it. Plus, my problem with my kids eating a whole banana is the frequent and tiring game of “what’s that smell?” where I look for 1/2 eaten bananas around the house.

No doubt, this isn’t something you’ve never heard of before. It’s probably in the same family as Ants on a Log but here we have something that would be named Sticky Discs, Spiced Pads or Interstellar Circles, I’m not sure what to call them. But it’s just sliced bananas, sprinkled cinnamon and a slight swish swash of honey. Try it. Your kids will be sticky disc happy. My friend Mandi was the first to give Spiced Pads to my kids, sometimes with various nuts or seeds on top. You have her to thank.


The Play Room News

My friend Emma runs The Play Room in Fernie, BC, a cool, safe little place to bring your kids and friends. Now they’re offering kids clothing consignment AND a nice and easy 3 punch pass for $10…but lets get back to the consignment clothes.

“Have some kids clothing in EUC? Save yourself the hassle of posting online and having people come to your home and bring them on in to The Play Room next time you come to play and make a little extra cash.”
